You may have to watch it a few times to spot the “Red” singer however.

Taylor, 24, who made her feature film debut in the 2010 rom-com Valentine’s Day, plays Jeff Bridges’ daughter in The Giver. The film is based on the 1993 of the same name by Lois Lowry. Ostensibly a glimpse into a utopian society, where all human experience has been converted to “sameness,” removing all fear, anxiety and emotional pain, the film soon uncovers the reality of having no depth of feeling.

Aussie newcomer Brenton Thwaites stars as Jonas, the “Receiver of Memory,” who uncovers the truth behind his world’s history. He learns that many years earlier his forefathers gave up free will to ensure a stable society. The film opens in theaters August 15th and also stars Katie Holmes and Alexander Skarsgard.
