Hunger Games is a movie which has been appreciated a lot internationally, primarily because of the breathtaking acting displayed by Jennifer Lawrence. Other than being a brilliantly conveyed story, it is one of the few films which have given the plot’s reins to an actress. And when it is someone like J-Law who has proved her prowess on the silver screen by winning an Academy Award, it is an added advantage.
On a separate note, there are quite many movies released in the past decade which are based on dystopian and post-apocalyptic futures. These films describe a society where humanity has had to start essentially from scratch, and the people are more or less under a regime they don’t like.
