The Young Adult novels that Hollywood has taken a shine to (Twilight, The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Maze Runner, The Giver) have a common generational theme. The elders (i.e., boomers) are ghouls who want to oppress or control us. Their scheme is to wedge us into functions or boxes or roles that have nothing to do with who we are. Our charge is to break free of this bondage. Hollywood always kills the golden goose by over-saturating. I honestly believe that Phillip Noyce‘s The Giver (Weinstein Co., 8.15) will be a better, smarter, classier expression (especially with Meryl Streep on-board) but what do I know? Here’s a Maze Runner trailer that popped through last October.
