Divergent (18-Mar-2014)

Director: Neil Burger

Writers: Evan Daugherty; Vanessa Taylor

From novel by: Veronica Roth

Keywords: Sci-Fi

Film adaptation of the 2011 novel of the same name tells the action-filled tale of a wayward young woman in a society with a harsh caste system.

In a dystopian future Chicago where society is divided into a system of factions representing various human virtues, individualistic young woman Tris Prior learns of her status as a "Divergent", a human being incapable of integrating into the world's rigidly-defined caste system. Initially fearful to reveal her discovery to her contemporaries for fear of facing a certain death, Tris soon uncovers a conflict threatening to tear her seemingly harmonious if segregated society apart at the seams, acting on this knowledge to fashion herself as a savior of sorts with a view to using her "Divergent" status to protect those she loves.
