A world where pain and mankind's memories are erased along with war, violence and prejudice may seem like utopia, but ignorance is not always bliss, as explored in the latest young adult film."The Giver," in U.S. theaters on Friday and based on Lois Lowry's novel, explores a futuristic society cultivated and controlled by Elders, whose leader is played by three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep ("The Iron Lady").As Jonas learns more about the world before his, he realizes that not everything is perfect within his own society and its selection process from birth, and he begins to question it.Much of the film is filtered in gray to depict that the society's inhabitants do not perceive color, but as Jonas learns more about the past, he notices glimpses of vibrant hues in his surroundings and starts to feel more emotions.
