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.
She's pretty funny at times in Silver Linings Playbook. To make another comparison between her and Meryl Streep, I think she could end up like Meryl in both dramatic and comedic roles. Meryl Streep isn't known for being funny, but she knows how to hit a comedic moment.
