In a world ruled by color categories to classify the level of danger a child poses, Ruby (Amandla Stenberg) is a category orange in the new regime wiping out her under 18 peers, but for the past several years she’s been able to avoid detection, that is, until now.

As a page to screen adaptation of Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds series, this film combines just the right amount of cinematic drama with fictional authenticity, to create a well-rounded and emotionally evoking spectacle.

Though the target audience may be a young one, the copious talent that emanates from the actors provides a maturity that is sure to please even the eldest of audience members.
