Why I love Jennifer Lawrence: My Hunger Games Review

1 Apr

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of seeing the Hunger Games on the silver screen. From the opening scene, where the film focuses on the poverty and starvation of District 12, the audience was clearly hooked. When seeing any movie at the theater, usually one hears some chatter in the background, but for the full run time the ENTIRE audience was silent. When I crunched on my popcorn or had a sip of soda, I was literally the loudest one in the theater.

The most stunning part of this adaptation was Ms. Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. With natural beauty and grace, Ms. Lawrence successfully gave life to this strong character. During the Reaping, which was ever reminiscent of the Holocaust, she managed to shine in braided hair and a plain blue dress. Her portrayal of the sisterly love between Prim and Katniss brought my own sister to tears. After her stylists “beautified” her (above), she became “the girl on fire” and truly lit up the screen.

Even during the games with tracker jacker stings, a gash on her head or simply toting around a bow, Ms. Lawrence somehow brought to the screen a bad-ass sweetheart who could shoot an arrow through your eye just as easily as she can hug you. Finally, Hollywood, a self-sufficient heroine who accurately made it from book to screen with little alteration.

    I will likely be seeing it again, and that’s really saying something. I am usually such a harsh film critic!
