People.com has unveiled new stills of Brenton Thwaites and Odeya Rush from Phillip Noyce’s “The Giver.”
Loosely based on the 1993 novel by Lois Lowry, “The Giver” stars Thwaites as Jonas, a teenage boy (as opposed to a 12-year-old in the book) who lives in a utopian society that shields him from experiencing the pleasures and sufferings of the real world. But that all changes when he is summoned as the successor of The Giver (played by Jeff Bridges), a man who bears the burden of knowing the truth of the community’s past and must pass on those lessons over to Jonas.
Also starring Cameron Monaghan and Meryl Streep, “The Giver” is due on August 15. Check out the new stills below of Jonas and Rush as his love interest, Fiona, getting up close and personal.
