About The Hunger Games

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) lives in Panem, a brutal, post-apocalyptic version of North America where fortunes are decided by a ruthless competition called the Hunger Games. Children from each district are made to compete in the televised death match which is a cross between Battle Royale and The X Factor. They are given glamorous makeovers to win the favours of the public – and then sent into an arena to fight each other to the death. The prize is financial security for the winner's family. Katniss volunteers to take the place of her younger sister when she is selected to play. Poor and starving but also an experienced hunter, Katniss will have to do horrible things to survive – but if her spirit remains unbroken perhaps she will challenge the legacy of the Games.
