Center for Spiritual Living Kauai hosts
“The Giver”, spiritual cinema starring Meryl Streep & Jeff Bridges
The film centers on Jonas, a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he spends time with The Giver, who is the sole keeper of all the community’s memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the truths of his community’s secret past.
At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all — a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before…

Optional group discussion follows the movie.
