The one aspect of the Lois Lowry's story I didn't like (and I love Lois Lowry) was her character of Jane. I got it, an old-fashion family and story calls for old fashion ways. Jane presented as an old-fashion girl: meek, mild and someone who believed she couldn't amount to anything. I was a bit worried how that would translate to a movie. Thankfully, it did not.
Jane is adventurous, rebellious and outspoken. As much as Tim tries to be the leader, the true leader is Jane. A smart contrast from the book.
While staying true to some dark elements of the book (child neglect, evil parents, etc.), the adaptation is colorful, lively and full of fun.
