Yes! That is exactly it--you said it better than I did. The whole theme is the personal/political aspect. That's how Katniss, who isn't political at all on purpose, manages to accidentally become the focus of the revolution. It just seemed to me that that was a very important thing to make sure to hammer on in the movie, so that we can understand the importance of what she's doing in the same way the audience of the actual Hunger Games would. It's easy to misunderstand it as just the games being cruel and people having had enough of them, but that misses the spark that Katniss lights herself without realizing it. The berry scene, especially, was a huge coup. She beat the games.
