I agree that the Giver film, overall, was definitely not as good at the book, which I loved, but if you’re avoiding it because it wasn’t filmed in black and white, don’t. It was filmed in black and white, at least up until Jonas realizes that the world is supposed to be in color. Then it slowly starts bleeding into color; like there’s a scene with red apples, but most of the background is still black and white. It’s pretty cool.

Hi Katy!

That’s really interesting! You’re one of two people to tell us/Merri to check it out, so we’ll have to do that. I haven’t read the book in yeeeaaars; maybe we could do a comparison thing? Thanks for the feedback!
