If you want to see Josh Hutcherson in a much different role than “The Hunger Games” character Peeta, check out “The Forger,” which is out on DVD now. The film , which also stars “Heroes” star Hayden Panettiere and Hollywood legend Lauren Bacall, tells the story about a troubled boy who discovers his talents while dealing with the world of art forgery:
“Troubled, homeless 15-year-old Joshua (Josh Hutcherson, ‘The Hunger Games’) lives from hand to mouth on the streets. He lands in Carmel by the Sea, a small town in California known for its local art community, where his prodigious art skill is discovered. As his talent flourishes, Joshua is lured into the underground world of high dollar art forgery. At the same time, he falls in love with Amber, played by Hayden Panettiere (‘Heroes’). Amber is a privileged girl from the wealthiest part of town. As the two become closer, the temptations of his new, illegal world become too great a lure for Joshua to resist. In the cutthroat and high stakes game of art forgery, where no one is who they appear to be, Joshua must now attempt to survive, stay true to himself and win back the heart of the girl he loves.”
