Brenton Thwaites discusses his role in The Giver

After months of teasing, a few trailers and a lot of posters, ‘The Giver’ will premiere in theaters in just a few days. The film has an incredible cast, and leading them is the star of the film Brenton Thwaites.
 
The young actor recently sat down to discuss his role in the film and share his thoughts on the popular story. For those of you that haven’t read the book, Brenton Thwaites will play the role of Jonas.
 
A very unique young man, Jonas’ life is a lie. What seems to be perfect, is actually controlled. Living in a colorless, world of conformity Jonas is taught by The Giver (Jeff Bridges), who is the sole keeper of all the community’s memories.
 
It is here that Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community’s secret past. With this newfound power of knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined – a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most.
 

 
At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all – a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before. THE GIVER is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 12 million copies worldwide.
