Plot

In a nameless society of the future, Sameness has been enshrined as a transcendent good, and all things leading to discord and confrontation have been systematically stripped from the human spirit: sex, love, war, parenthood, death, even the colors of the rainbow. Children are assigned to parents at birth, and teenagers are assigned their life's work soon after puberty. Only one member of the society, Jonas (Thwaites), is selected to learn the truth about the past, and is named The Receiver of all the painful memories and unpleasant facts from which all others are shielded. But when Jonas begins his agonizing re-education at the hands of The Giver (Bridges), he slowly begins the process of rejecting all the soothing, enfeebling lies he has been told, each and every minute of his life.
