Hunger Games - Movie
Director Gary Ross has done a fine job of this fast moving futuristic thriller, having as well co written the screenplay with Suzanne Collins. . Jennifer Lawrence's acting is impressive and endearing. She and robust Peeta Mellark act as future players in a fight to the finish competition of many young people designed to leave little hope for the once rebellious states that threatened the decadent central government. Donald Sutherland is amazing as the cynical president. I loved Stanley Tucci. His baroque hair is as winning as his game show host smile. A terrific flick I'd certainly recommend.
