Radford Girl Stef Dawson takes on The Hunger Games

By johnboy 29 August 2013 34

The Age has the word on Canberra’s Stef Dawson landing a major role in the next two Hunger Games movies.

It’s nice to see a local doing well in Hollywood.

But, it would be remiss of me to not point out that The Hunger Games is downright evil, pure poison, and damn close to being Mein Kampf for a young adult audience.

If only Sherman had burned the slaving bastards harder.

What’s Your opinion?

Only the intellectually lazy or stupid fear literature that doesn’t accord with their views. It’s a bit like parents being scared about religious classes in schools.

or the Fundies who are terrified of Harry Potter

There’s something a little fishy about Finding Nemo and I don’t mean the clownfish hero with the gammy fin. I’m talking instead about the too-easy, no-pain, nature-worshipping New Age-ism being pushed by this hit animation.

Hunger Games is a fantasy of unreconstructed confederates.

Yeah, but it has Jennifer Lawrence in it.

It’s a story, much like any other. If it encourages kids to read then great. If it gives you a jumping off point to discuss themes and issues with your children, so much the better.

Only the intellectually lazy or stupid fear literature that doesn’t accord with their views. It’s a bit like parents being scared about religious classes in schools. Use it as an opportunity to engage your kids and encourage them to stretch their thinking and consider other points of view. It doesn’t mean you have to agree, or even accept, these perspectives.

Radford Collegians are claiming her.

Nope she was definitely at Girls Grammar.

The CT article says she went to both. Why that possibility never crossed anybody’s mind is beyond me, but hey, there’s a lot I don’t understand. When I found out she was a GG alumni my feelings of congratulations were overcome by bitterness that of course you have to have gone to the richest school in the territory to be able to do things like land movie roles.

Why does it matter? Is she still attending high school???

Much like Katniss herself

You know she’s not a real person, right?

Yes, but as she is the lead character in all three Hunger Games novels and their accompanying films, and they are the material under dscussion both here and in the linked review, I found mentions of her, or comparative metaphors between her and the writer of the review in question, to be contextually appropriate.

She went to Grammar, not Radford
