The Giver: In Theaters August 15th

By Mark RodgersBack in 2005, Michael Flaherty, the President and founder of Walden Media, shared with me the Newbury Award winning book, The Giver, which they were developing for film adaptationLife, tradition, history, family and liberty are all themes explored creatively and powerfully through the book.  A dear friend, Ralph Winter (X-Men, Fantastic Four) is producer of the film being released this August, and after seeing it last week, I can safely say that this this is one of those very rare films that speaks directly into the conversations we are having as a society without contributing to its polarization.  You can get the flavor of the film from the "featurette" trailer, and by reading the article HERE.  More to come!
