The movie descriptions I got directly from the posting.
1) Tiger Eyes - Judy Bloom - "Officially released last year, Tiger Eyes is in wider United States distribution this summer. Based on Judy Blume's best-selling young adult novel, the film features Willa Holland as Davey, a young woman coping with her father's death, Amy Jo Johnson as her mother, and Tatanka Means as Wolf, the Native American boy she meets in New Mexico."

Set in a supernatural version of 1916 and present-day Manhattan, Winter's Tale is a love story about Peter Lake, a girl named Beverly Penn, and New York."
3) The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins - "Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson reprise their roles as Katniss and Peeta in this second installment of The Hunger Games trilogy.
