Divergent is a movie about the future, a future where all are not created equal. Some are created to be intelligent, some selfless, some brave, some peaceful and some honest. It's a world
divided by fractions based on virtues. Or rather, a city - but a small fragment of the world - but for the people in it, everything they know. In the ruins of New York a new order has been born and sustained for the past decades, surrounded by a huge wall, with a system wherein people govern themselves.
Tris is just one of many, but it turns out she's not like the rest of them, because she doesn't belong to one single group. She wonders, she questions... she diverges from the norm, even if she keeps it secret, because in a uniform world: different is a dangerous thing to be.
The better plot summary I write for a movie, the better I like it... right? ;) And I liked this movie! It had a brand new kind of society (disregarding the traditional dystopia), pace, emotion and a selection of intriguing personalities that work together - or against each other - at making the movie a venture into another, very impacting world. Did I mention there's a sinister plot to take control over the city brewing in the background? Great watch.
