The “G-Man” is back. Gareth Edwards is back after compiling the longest set of shows on a topic highway to mars is likely to ever see, to talk the movie “The Giver”. This is a movie that wasn’t super successful but it’s got a lot going for it, especially with the teenage dystopian future genre being so maxed out.
Set in a post war future earth, this movie explores what it is to be human through the lens of a world that has given away it’s humanity in exchange for peace. It’s thoughtful and mostly well executed, even if the ending is a little too contrived. That does not detract from the fact this movie makes a serious attempt at some hard core science fiction and human dilemmas. Enjoyed the movie and especially enjoyed catching up with Gareth.
