Building on her performance as a take-no-prisoners teenager in Winter`s Bone, Jennifer Lawrence portrays heroine Katniss Everdeen in Gary Ross`s action-oriented adaptation of author-screenwriter Suzanne Collins`s young adult bestseller. Set in a dystopian future in which the income gap is greater than ever, 24 underprivileged youth fight to the death every year in a televised spectacle designed to entertain the rich and give the poor enough hope to quell any further unrest--but not too much, warns Panem president Snow (Donald Sutherland), because that would be "dangerous." Hailing from the same mining town, 16-year-olds Katniss and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson, The Kids Are All Right) represent District 12 with the help of escort Effie (an unrecognizable Elizabeth Banks) and mentor Haymitch (a scene-stealing Woody Harrelson). At first they`re adversaries, but a wary partnership eventually develops, though the rules stipulate that only one contestant can win. For those who haven`t read the book, the conclusion is likely to come as a surprise. Before it arrives, Ross (Pleasantville) depicts a society in which the Haves appear to have stepped out of a Dr. Seuss book and the Have-Nots look like refugees from the WPA photographs of Walker Evans. It`s an odd mix, made odder still by frenetic fight scenes where it`s hard to tell who`s doing what to whom. Fortunately, Lawrence and Hutcherson prove a sympathetic match in this crazy, mixed-up combination of Survivor, Lost, and the collected works of George Orwell. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which â€œTributesâ€ must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen volunteers in her younger sisterâ€™s place to enter the games, and is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy when sheâ€™s pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives. If sheâ€™s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
