On Nov 21, Mockingjay Part 1 sent audience members back into the world of Panem. The movie accurately translated from the book with only one major change: the appearance of Effie Trinket, who was not supposed to reappear until the end of Mockingjay Part 2. With the help of Effie and her District 13 team of stylists, Katniss, riddled with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), prepares to become the Mockingjay—the symbol of the rebellion.
This movie was the build-up for Mockingjay Part 2, setting the tone and preparing for the catastrophic civil war. While Part 1 may have been boring for some, it provided personal details of Katniss’s life and showed the careful planning of President Coin, and the other victors to lead the rebels in 13. Past the powerful propaganda and scenes of rebellion, the movie ignited the crumbling dystopia, ending on a massive cliffhanger for those who have not read the books. Mockinjay Part 1 left a Peeta-sized hole in our heart that will not be filled until the release of Part 2 in Nov. 2015.
