As a parent, you may be wondering if The Hunger Games is appropriate for your child to see this weekend. I wanted to pass along a couple interesting articles by New York Film Critics Circle member, Thelma Adams where she discusses the film from a parent’s point of view.On Yahoo’s Reel Breakdown, she writes: “When Katniss ultimately raises her bow and targets another human, it’s an extension of a promise that she made to protect the weak and to push herself as far as she can to survive and return home to the sister that depends on her.”
I loved the Hunger Games books. I thought they are wonderfully written and I was engaged the entire time I read all three books. I couldn’t help but wonder if these books were appropriate for children as I was reading them. They deal with some pretty tough situations and subject matter. As the movie opens this weekend, I was sent some of this information to pass along to my readers. I thought that parents would be interested in reading what other adults are saying about the movie.
The Hunger Games opens in theaters everywhere tomorrow!
