This movie is based on a book with the same name. It is about a girl who lives in “Panem” a dictatorial country located in what was the United States of America. The country is divided in districts and she lives in district 12, which is the last one. Each year the government chooses a girl and a boy of each district and make them play in The Hunger Games. The point of the Games is to fight to death until only one of the 24 tributes remains alive. The girl in district 12 ends up going to the Games where she needs to fight to stay alive because she promised her little sister.
I really like this movie because it really sticks to what the book reads. It has two sequels to that book, one called Catching Fire and the other one Mockingjay. I have read them all like three times each. And I am really looking forward to the next movie which comes out in November 22nd this year.
Director: Gary Ross
