Divergent is a thrilling action-adventure film set in a world where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy by a faction leader (Kate Winslet) to destroy all Divergents, Tris must learn to trust in the mysterious Four (Theo James) and together they must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late.
If you haven’t read the book or seen the movie, I highly recommend doing both. Veronica Roth, author of the Divergent Trilogy, wrote her first book, Divergent, while on winter break in her senior year at Northwestern University.Her career took off rapidly with the success of her first novel, with the movie rights sold before she graduated from college. Impressive huh?
