What a movie! The prequel to the monumental Hunger Games trilogy certainly did not disappoint.

The story follows the complex relationship between the tribute Lucy Gray and her mentor Coriolanus Snow (the future president of the dystopian version of North America, known as Panem). Journey with them through the games to discover President Snow’s rationale and motives for his actions in the later books - you will learn who the illusive Tigris once was and dance and stomp with the beautiful charismatic performer Lucy Gray. This beautifully filmed piece of cinematography, had carefully-crafted costumes, vibrant music, and a dramatic love story to boot! Therefore, it recieves a perfect score of 5 Challoner’s shields.

If you would prefer to read the book first, which I highly recommend, please visit the school library.
