There was a great moment early on the film when her character pleads to take the place of the little sister. You can sense the mix of courage and fear in her trembling voice.
I think she seriously outshone everyone else in that movie because her performance seemed so grounded in reality. Talent-wise, the actors who played Gale and Peeta aren't even in the same stratosphere as Jennifer Lawrence. Wes Bentley and the overrated Elizabeth Banks seemed a bit too gimicky (the latter more so). Donald Sutherland was kinda sleep-walking his way through that role. But Lenny Kravitz was surprisingly likeable enough.
So, action star? Check. Dramatic roles with indie cred? Check. I wonder if she has any comedic chops.
