Let The Games Begin…

The Hunger Game’s ravenous fans are flocking to theaters this week.  The story has been told before (1984, Fahrenheit 451, The Running Man, The Giver among many others) and the appeal is timeless.  The question – is mindless entertainment a substitute for human connection? – is worth asking.
