If required to fight for your life what actual skill would determine your survival: patience, strength, stealth, speed, intelligence, trust or a combination of these, if available. And could you disregard the nagging initial instinct to kill your district rivals, as such is the case between the 24 district draftees in author Suzanne Collins, Hunger Games, and work with them to achieve an ultimate goal of survival; or would you be so caught up in and focused on achieving your own glory that you would look to slay first, knowing, believing you had made the right decision.
Katniss Everdeen, the female representative of district 12 from the future nation of Panem, with the help of handlers, Cinna (Lenny Kravitz) and 50th hunger games winner, Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) faces each situation she encounters with acuity and valor. A trend with Katniss, who after she has to assure her sister Primrose (Willow Shields) that she, Prim’ most likely won’t be chosen to fight for their district has to step up when Prim is chosen; it is here she chooses to take her younger sister’s place.
