The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
I loved the Hungergames books. Each had it's own tone , yet told a story of politics, control, rebellion and love. I have enjoyed both of the movies made from the first two books, but I was skeptical of the third being made into 2 films. That was laid aside when I saw Mockingjay Part 1. This was a strong film telling the continuing story of the Capital against the Rebellion. New characters are well developed and the story moves forward with drama. The treatment of the character Effie Trinkham is subtle and entertaining without being distracting. it is a real joy to watch Phillip Seymour Hoffman. I'm looking forward to the last film of this series. Well done.
