Divergent takes place in a dystopian Chicago, years after the fall of civilization. Society has broken up into five different factions. Roughly, these groups consist of charity workers, hippie farmers, intellectuals, lawyers and the military. On her 16th birthday, Beatrice Prior (The Descendants' Shailene Woodley) chooses to leave her family and join the militaristic Dauntless. It isn't long into her training before her mentor, Four (an impressive Theo James), figures out that Beatrice is "divergent"—someone considered too dangerous to live because they have traits from all five clans. Soon, Beatrice must combat a conspiracy within the city's walls while simultaneously attempting to hide her true powers. The film is too long at 139 minutes, but is sure to be a hit with the young-adult crowd.
