The Hunger Games

A brave young woman volunteers for a televised fight to the death to save her sister.


Why watch this film?

The dystopian sci-fi literary saga for teens written by Suzanne Collins finds a satisfying film adaptation in the hands of director Gary Ross ("Seabiscuit: Soul of a Hero"). Thematically, "The Hunger Games" is like a "toned down" version of movies like "Battle Royale", but it still manages to be an exciting movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The key is Jennifer Lawrence's convincing performance, the role that made her a star.
