Karina Panda asked:
i dont think It will be a good movie, I mean what packs a punch is the surprise when you realize everyone in there is color blind.Also How much detail will they take out?

This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[I had concerns like yours before I saw the movie. The book has been one of my favorites since I first read it around middle school. The "color surprise" is difficult to convey in images. Also, actors are naturally emotional. They have to set up the society fairly quickly so they can get to the "action". The emphasis was changed so that Jonas acquires a lot of knowledge and learns about beauty. (hide spoiler)]
