"The Giver" is beloved?

Don't get me wrong, I highly recommend it, but it left me feeling very uncomfortable (as I expect the author intended), and is one of the few Newbery award winners I have not re-read. Hollywood movies typically have happy endings; I don't see how Hollywood could possibly get "The Giver" right.

Gah! This movie looks like a disaster already. At least the beginning needs to be in black and white! (Their world has no color.)
