When Katniss volunteers to take the place of her sister in the annual hunger games (a fight to the death between a guy and a gal from across all 12 districts) she starts on a journey of self discovery and life experiences that she thought shed never have to endure.
As she makes friends, allies and enemies, she fights through the games trying to keep true to herself, and not let herself get sucked in by the publicity and the bloodshed.
Whilst not her first foray on the big screen it is definitely what launched Jennifer Lawrence into the limelight as she began this trilogy. This is a great movie to start the series, and still great to watch on it’s own merit.
