Divergent- the movie

Divergent -the movie

This flick was trending on Twitter yesterday

Cast: upcoming star Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet, Scandal's Tony Goldwyn, Ashley Judd

The setting is a futuristic dystopian City where society is divided into factions: Abnegation (selfless), Amity (peaceful), Candor (truthful), Erudite (intelligent) and Dauntless (brave), based on their personalities.

However the Protagonist, Beatrice "Trix" ( Shailene Woodley) has different attributes of several factions (Abnegation, Erudite and Dauntless), which means she is Divergent. Since Divergent people can think independently and government cannot conform their thinking, they are considered threats to the social orders.

She must pass the rites of initiation in Dauntless, conceal her 'divergence', fall in love with Four ( Theo James) and prevent Erudite from annihilating the ruling group, Abnegation

If you love Hunger Games and that sort of ish, you'd love this flick. There's a sequel ( Insurgent) planned for next year

It's decent, not great- in my opinion. The plot line was formulaic and you're left with a sense of de javu. You've seen it before. Great acting by the leads - Shailene & Theo though
