TEENS/ADULT: Casting of Hunger Game's Katniss
I don't usually post on this blog about movies, but I recently watched Winter's Bone (Rated R)starring Jennifer Lawrence, and I feel pretty good about her being cast as Katniss in the soon to be released Hunger Games movie. Her Winter's Bone character was the oldest daughter of a family with an absent father, a mentally absent mother (catanonic-like), who has developed a no-nonsense toughness, purely as a survival skill. She also has a great tenderness for her younger siblings.....and is the kind of character you really root for. Sound familar? I could really see her in the scenes in my mind from The Hunger Games, and look forward to watching her interpretation of this great character.
FYI: The library will host a Hunger Games: Book into Movie discussion the week after the movie comes out (released on Friday, March 23)....dates and time to be announced, but watch for details.
