Divergent

   

Divergent (2015) starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ashley Judd

In the future, a reluctant heroine is catapulted into adventure when she finds out she’s a Divergent. She won’t neatly fit into one certain group. She uncovers a plot by a faction leader to change society forever.

Review

Have you ever felt like a square peg in a round hole? That’s not allowed in the fictional world of Divergent. Everyone is neatly pegged into one of five factions. And they’re never allowed to leave. Or have anything to do with other factions. Not even their own familiy, if they’re in a different faction. “Faction before blood”.

The five factions

  • Erudites – they value knowledge and logic. The scientists. Smart.
  • Amity – farmers. “They’re all about kindness and harmony, always happy.” Kind.
  • Candor – value honesty and order. “They tell the truth, even when you wish they wouldn’t.” Honest.
  • Dauntless – the soldiers & police. Brave, fearless, and free. Brave.
  • Abnegation. Selfless, dedicated to helping others. They run the government, because they’re supposedly selfless.

Cast

  • Shailene Woodley as Tris Prior. The heroine and protagonist. She doesn’t neatly fit into any of the factions. Despite being born into Abnegation, she chooses Dauntless …. After a moment of hesitation. She changes her name from Beatrice to Tris, to symbolize her new life.
