Imagine a world with no color, no emotions and no free will.

This is the premise for the film “The Giver,” directed by Philip Noyce.

The office of student life will show the movie, based on Lois Lowry’s Newbery Medal-winning novel, at 7:30 p.m. today in the Fiesta Room of Loftin Student Center.

“The Giver” takes place in a totalitarian community, where everything is controlled and people receive their occupations when they turn 16 years old. The main character, Jonas, is chosen to receive the memories of an elder known as the Giver, who will transmit true, painful and joyous feelings from experiences in past lives, which community members know nothing of.

The movie is free to all students of this college. It cost $1 for non-students. There will be soda, popcorn and candy on sale for $1 each.

The movie is rated PG-13.
