A massive debate still rages over the casting for the movie version, even though it will be released in a couple of weeks. Should M. Night Shamylan and the producers have used solely Asian and Inuit actors in the starring roles?
The debate has extended into our own house. Both DH and I think they should have used Asian and Inuit actors, but we're also old enough to pick up on the TV series cultural clues. GK thinks it shouldn't matter as long the actors capture the true spirit of the characters. And aren't DH and I always telling him he should judge a person by his/her actions, not skin color?
Anyone else want to weigh in on the film controversy?
