Jude Law stars as the rebellious Dom Hemingway, a criminal who has just been released from prison after serving a lengthy 12 years. After keeping his mouth shut for his boss, the notorious Mr Fontaine, he travels to the South of France with his one handed associate Dickie (Richard E. Grant), to demand compensation.

The Ultimate Battle: Book Vs FIlm

When I first read The Hunger Games, I loved it. Well, I say loved it…it wasn’t perfect and when I think about it, it’s actually the trilogy that I love.
