Shailene Woodley and Theo James star in the thrilling action-adventure film “Divergent” based on the best-selling book series by Veronica Roth.

Set in a world where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues, Tris Prior, played by Woodley, is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group.

Tris must learn to trust in the mysterious Four, played by James, after discovering a conspiracy by a faction leader, played by Kate Winslet, to destroy all Divergents.

With a $56 million debut, Woodley delivers a terrific lead performance. If you are a fan of “The Hunger Games,” enjoy rebellion and fast-paced action, this film is a must-see.
