The much-anticipated film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's beloved 1986 musical has finally arrived. It follows the familiar stories of the fairy tale characters we've grown up with, with a big twist that makes them fresher and darker. The main problem with the adaptation, however, is that it doesn't deliver the same amount of bite and depth as the source material.
Some movies seem to come out at the perfect time, striking a chord with the emotions and experiences of the audience. Other movies come out following the release of a litany of similar films, seeming unoriginal and boring. "The Giver" is that second kind of movie.
