Julianne Moore is on the cover of Modern Luxury’s Angeleno talking about her life, family and work. The Oscar-winner (love how that finally sounds!) talked about bringing depth to President Alma Coin off the novel’s pages:
“Because you see Coin from the view of Katniss, she’s not fully fleshed out. But I wanted to give her a kind of an arc. I don’t want to give it away, but there’s a sense of evolution with Coin that leads potentially to a sense of disillusionment. I wanted her to evolve from someone who was revolutionary to someone who has inserted herself in a power structure.”
We’ve already seen the first half of this arc in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, beginning with her factual approach in communicating with the residents of District 13 and transitioning to Plutarch’s suggestion of showmanship by the end of the film. Readers know all too well that “sense of disillusionment” by the end of the story. The odds have always been stacked against Katniss finding faith in humanity, as Moore remarks on the series central question:
“How do you find your own moral compass in a world that says you must do this; you should do that?”
The digital format of Modern Luxury’s Angeleno is available online from October 20th.
