Cape Town - Last year the likes of Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges and Katie Holmes graced our shores to film the sci-fi thriller, The Giver.

While shooting in Cape Town they sipped on local white wine and bumped along to reggae music.  

The movie is based on the sci-fi novel by Lois Lowry. Set in a dystopian society, a 12-year-old boy Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) is selected to learn from an elderly man, The Giver (Bridges), about the pain and strife of the real world.

Meryl Streep is the Chief Elder in charge of keeping society in check while Katie Holmes is a strict law abiding citizen and the mother of Thwaites’ character. 

The film also stars Taylor Swift.
