55: ‘The Giver’ Starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites




This week we give it to the The Giver. (Wordplay!) “What’s The Giver?” you ask. Why, it’s the latest dystopian-future, kill-fest for kids. They’re releasing them monthly now. And, just in case that doesn’t sound dreary enough for you they filmed this one in black & white. Well, large chunks of it anyway.

All that plus Tom reveals his connection to Ferguson (it’s not that exciting) and Dan has a video recovery which is more exciting. Well, his recovery is even if the movie isn’t.

It’s Reel Spoilers #55: The Giver.

You’ve been warned.

Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Blake Fehl, Dan Graney, Joe Buttice
Run-time: 1hr 11min
