More Info IMDb

Based on the best-selling novel by Veronica Roth, DIVERGENT follows the journey of Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley), who comes of age in a dystopian version of Chicago. In this future world, the city is divided into communities based on character traits, but when Tris takes the test to determine her faction, she discovers that her abilities defy all classification. Labeled as a Divergent and hunted by the government as an anomaly, Tris chooses to hide herself amidst Dauntless, a fearless crew of warriors responsible for the city's security.

She may be safe from the outside world, but now Tris must face the Dauntless initiation, a brutal onslaught of combat and mind games. Thankfully, her instructor happens to be a smoldering slice of sexy named Four (Theo James), and together, they just might survive long enough to take down the oppressive government regime.

Directed by Neil Burger and starring some of the hottest names in Hollywood, including Kate Winslet, Miles Teller and Zoë Kravitz, DIVERGENT is both a thrilling adventure and a thoughtful examination of the dark side of human nature. (Sarah Pitre)
