I wonder how they'll film the three characters' concurrent story lines. They surely couldn't do one at a time like the book....maybe quick cuts from character to character?

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Or like Crash or Babel. Both (IMHO) highly effective films with multiple points of view.

Yes, Babel was very effective in that way. I don't remember much about Crash.
