The Giver ★★★

Not enough Taylor Swift.

I have never read the book, but just from watching this, I can tell its amazing. The story itself is inspirational and amazing. And I gotta give the movie props for its slowly-rising color grading and its Tree-of-Life-esque flashbacks sequences.

But in terms of editing, pacing, and acting, this movie basiclly falls flat. Still, it gets you thinking regardless and had enough positives. Was certainly better than Divergent.
