Compare that to the population makeup just four years ago, when a little more than 10 percent of Americans were ages 65 and older.

To members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, temples are the most sacred spaces on earth, where we seek to feel close to God, to make promises to follow His Son, Jesus Christ, and where we learn about life’s purpose and our part in God’s plan.

I have been touched by the response of so many in our community who have come — sometimes repeatedly — to see and understand why temples are so important to our faith.

Against considerable odds, this risky-sounding Orson Scott Card adaptation actually works, as director Gavin Hood pulls off the sort of teen-targeted franchise starter Summit was hoping for.
