A young couple find a teapot that dispenses money every time someone gets hurt. Much pain ensues. Clever, though somewhat racist film, the teapot has a star of David on it and was mainly in Jewish hands throughout it's history, that's pretty well carried out. I quite liked Juno Temple in this one.
Words cannot express how much I love the concept behind the story of this film. A situationist 'game' is hatched in the San Francisco/Oakland area and thousands of people get caught up in it. Some take it too seriously, and some refuse to admit it's over when it ends, but every one who 'plays' it is hooked. It's brilliant. The film about it drags a it but overall it's fascinating.
Sorry, I can't be objective about Jennifer Lawrence. I have such a huge crush on her, I'd love her in anything. I loved the parts of the film she was in but the others not so much. I haven't read the books this series is based on, and won't ever, so I don't know if they did a good job in adapting them, but I know they did a great job in casting Ms. Lawrence. Bottom line on this one is it's pretty good and very exciting, although it does remind me a lot of the Japanese film Battle Royale which came out in 2000.
