Passes the low standards of the test near the end -- once Fiona is in custody, she and Mother (none of the adult characters have names, only titles) talk about the world that they're living in and the fact that Fiona has seen and felt more of it than she knew existed. Jonas' name is mentioned, but this scene centers Fiona and her experiences, and the consequences that she faces. Everything else in this movie centers either Jonah or The Giver, but this scene puts it through.

There is also a brief seen where Mother and Lilly have brief conversations with the Chief Elder.
