For the right group of students, this review can form the basis for a good writing prompt. As most would agree, the first Hunger Games was excellently put together so a continuation was very much welcomed.

This film is a Holocaust drama, and it explores the horror of a World War II Nazi extermination camp through the eyes of two 8-year-old boys; one the son of the camp's Nazi commandant, the other a Jewish inmate. The film opens in Berlin in Nazi Germany during the Holocaust where a little boy named Bruno Asa Butterfield is seen playing with his three friends.
