Story


Based on Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling novel, DIVERGENT is a gripping action thriller set in a futuristic world where society has been divided into five factions. As each person approaches adulthood, he or she must choose a faction and commit to it for the rest of their life. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) chooses Dauntless-the daring risk-takers who pursue bravery above all else. During the Dauntless initiation, Tris completes death-defying stunts and faces her inmost fears in spectacular simulations. When she discovers she is a Divergent, someone who will never be able to fit into just one faction, she is warned that she must conceal this secret or risk her life. As Tris uncovers a looming war which threatens her family and the life of the mysterious Dauntless leader whom she has come to love, Tris must face her greatest test yet-deciding whether revealing she is a Divergent will save her world-or destroy it.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..overall I was delighted with "Divergent" and am eager to see how the remaining two films continue to take us on Tris' adventure..”
by Bill Zwecker [Chicago Sun-Times]
“..a rocky start to the Next Big Thing in YA movie franchises..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]
“..yet director Neil Burger seems so concerned with laying franchise groundwork that he neglects to create an engaging standalone movie, and "Divergent's" uncertain sense of setting, bloated plot, drab visual style and solid yet underwhelming lead turns..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]
