The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland, gets it home video release today and it is worth buying for the special features alone.
Based on the first half of the third book of The Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay Part 1 continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, formerly of District 12, who sacrificed herself to join the Hunger Games when her sister’s number came up in the worst lottery ever. Partnering with Peeta, they combine forces to beat the system. Catching Fire, the second book in the trilogy, had Katniss and Peeta go through the Games again, this time with all the previous winners. In Mockingjay Part 1, Peeta had been left behind at the Capitol and is their spokesman, and Katniss is recruited by Plutarch and President Coin. She decides to be their Mockingjay, reluctantly, but comes to realize that “with great power comes great responsibility.”
