Out of all the Mormon fiction writers, Orson Scott Card is the most popular – second to only Stephanie Meyer of Twilight fame. Among his works, the most famous is Ender’s Game, an award-winning science fiction war novel published in 1985. After the book gained much popularity and praise, Card began to work valiantly to adapt it to film, but official development did not start until 2010 once Gavin Hood was attached as the writer and director. Now that Card’s beloved novel has been realized on the big screen, has his vision of a militarized future been brought to poignant, vibrant life?
