I don't doubt that. I can't speak to the quality of the book, but I have to say I knew it was written by a woman after watching it

As for Jennifer Lawrence, she is 22 (and of course all of the stars of the Hunger Games were much older than the 12-18 they portrayed). She was really good in Winter's Bone, which was a solid movie from 2010.
Agreed, I really liked that movie. I'd say she seems a decent actress, but she has a kind of "sleepwalking" quality to her acting that I'm not sure is particularly impressive.

However, John Hawkes was masterful in the film
