Divergent is a thrilling 2014 science fiction film directed by Neil Burger and based on the novel of the same name by Veronica Roth. The movie takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where society is divided into five factions, each with their own distinct characteristics and beliefs. The story follows Tris Prior, a young girl who must choose between staying in her comfortable and familiar faction or leaving everything she knows behind to join a new one. Along the way, she discovers a sinister plot to eliminate those who do not fit into the existing factions and must fight to survive.
The film stars Shailene Woodley as Tris, Theo James as Four, and Kate Winslet as Jeanine Matthews. The movie received mixed reviews from critics, but was a box office success grossing more than $288 million worldwide. The Divergent series has since been adapted into a franchise and has been praised for its strong performances from the cast, particularly Shailene Woodley and Theo James.
