David - I hate to say this, but I actually read the book because I was flipping channels and saw bits and pieces of the movie. The book is more nuanced and complex, but the movie is not bad.

I so loved this book that I have not been able to bring myself to watch the movie. My own take is that a theme that runs through the book (well illustrated by the moment you describe above) is freedom of choice (the opposite of slavery) and the consequences of exercising that.

I have learned to recommend this book carefully since it has not been universally appreciated by those I have suggested it to :)
