The Golden Compass, set to open in Halifax on December 7, is based on the book by Philip Pullman, an atheist. Critics of the book call it anti-religious and some are calling for the boycott of the film.
The Golden Compass,both book and movie, tells the story of a young girl's battle against a mysterious organization steeped in spiritual overtones. The book was recently pulled from library shelves by The Halton Catholic District School Board in Ontario.
What are your thoughts about the controversy? Will it stop you from seeing the film or are you now more likely to go?
