Description :  Il bestseller internazionale da cui è stato tratto il film. Jonas ha dodici anni e vive in un mondo perfetto. Nella sua Comunità non esistono più guerre, differenze sociali o sofferenze. Tutto quello che può causare dolore o disturbo è stato abolito, compresi gli impulsi sessuali, le stagioni e i colori. Le regole da rispettare sono ferree ma tutti i membri della Comunità si adeguano al modello di controllo governativo che non lascia spazio a scelte o profondità emotive, ma neppure a incertezze o rischi. Ogni unità familiare è formata da un uomo e una donna a cui vengono assegnati un figlio maschio e una femmina. Ogni membro della Comunità svolge la professione che gli viene affidata dal Consiglio degli Anziani nella Cerimonia annuale di dicembre. E per Jonas quel momento sta arrivando. Vincitore di numerosi riconoscimenti letterari tra cui la prestigiosa Newberry Medal, acclamato dalla critica ufficiale e tradotto in trenta paesi (con 6 milioni di copie vendute), The Giver - Il Donatore è stato censurato in molte scuole americane perché accusato di trattare temi come la sessualità, l'eutanasia e l'infanticidio in modo esplicito.
