The first part of Mockingjay, adapted by Danny Strong from Suzanne Collins' third novel, finds Katniss and the other rebels finally taking their fight to the Capitol and its ruthless President Snow (Donald Sutherland). But the fight against the tyrannical ruler will not be an easy one, and everyone involved will have to sacrifice if the Districts are to be finally free. And to complicate matters for Katniss personally, Peeta is now a prisoner of the Capitol and is being forced to serve their propaganda purposes.
