A thrilling action-adventure set in a future world where people are segregated by personality type.
A hundred years after a devastating war, Chicago has been divided into five factions. Each is defined by its members' dominant personality trait: Erudite (intelligence), Dauntless (bravery), Abnegation (selflessness), Amity (friendship) and Candour (honesty). As teenagers, all citizens undergo rigorous testing to determine which faction they belong to. Born into an Abnegation family, Beatrice 'Tris' Prior (Shailene Woodley) discovers that she's the rarest of all humans - a 'divergent', with multiple aptitudes. Her very existence being a threat to the established order, she conceals her true nature and chooses to join the Dauntless faction. Adapted from Veronica Roth's bestselling young adult novel, this stunt-packed dystopian adventure is directed by Neil Burger of 'Limitless' fame. First seen in 'The Descendants', Shailene Woodley takes the lead role as feisty Tris. Kate Winslet is cast as her icy Erudite nemesis, Jeanine Matthews.
