Three decades after the novel "Ender's Game" became a science fiction classic, the tale of the young space warrior finally comes to the big screen, opening in theaters across the country Friday. But author Orson Scott Card's recent statements against gay marriage and homosexuality have cast a shadow over the film's Hollywood debut.

On Friday at 12:15 p.m., Jennifer Napier-Pearce talks about Card's work as well as his controversial social views with Tribune film critic Sean P. Means; Robert Maxwell, curator of the Orson Scott Card Collection at Brigham Young University; and Eric Howard, designer of the new BYU exhibit "Card's Game".
