The dystopian franchise The Hunger Games (based on the equally popular novels by Suzanne Collins) has been a phenomenon for teen audiences. Featuring Jennifer Lawrence in the leading role as the reluctant hero Katniss Everdeen, the trilogy has provided an empowering female role for a generation. Arguably the best of the screen adaptations, this first film explores themes of power, perception and celebrity culture, in a truly exciting tale about a girl relying on her wits as well as her skills to survive.
