Lois Lowrey Gives THE GIVER Adaptation Praise

the giver wide

We’ve seen author Lois Lowrey giving some feedback in featurettes for The Giver, but with the premiere date a little more than a month away she wants fans of the book to know there’s nothing to worry about. In a new poster featuring actors Brenton Thwaites and Odeya Rush, she’s quoted with the following:

It’s all there. The boy. The old man. The baby. The sled. If you loved the book take my word for it — you’ll love the movie as well.

And if it’s good enough for the author of the book, then it’s good enough for me. I think a good number of authors are involved in movie adaptations, but I think it’s wise to put her blessing out like this. Take a look at the poster.


Thanks to THR.

The Giver starring Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgård, Taylor Swift and Jeff Bridges is slated to hit theaters August 15, 2014.
