Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
Jennifer Lawrence said in an interview that she accepted the role of Katniss Everdeen because she admired Katniss' personality and spirit.
I think it's our tradition. It comes out of a particularly painful part of our history...
Caesar Flickerman: Yes, yes.
Seneca Crane: ...but it's been the way we're able to heal.
When Effie Trinket is shown from behind walking to the bowl to draw the girl tribute, she has a lot of hair on her neck. Then, when she is shown from behind going to meet Katniss, she has just a few strands of hair there.
The film opens with a worded passage about the history of the Hunger Games. In the last section, all of the text fades away except for the film's title.
