If you’re an action and romance lover then the movie “Divergent” is perfect for you. The movie is about a post-war of Chicago 100 years from now that is broken down into five factions. As each person enters adulthood they would take a test that determines their new home .These factions were enclosed by a giant wall. The citizens had never been outside of the wall and were prohibited to do so. Curiosity has sparked many but if they attempted to even go close to the wall they would be punished or killed.

In this world it is a crime to be different. Divergents are viewed as threats because of their ability to think outside of the box and be different. They do not fit into any of the factions. Beatrice Prior played by actress Shailene Woodley is a prime example of a Divergent who could not be contained, she refused to be normal. While training at her new home Dauntless (a faction) Tris met Tobias Eaton played by actor Theo James. Tobias was also like Tris, a Divergent. At the beginning Tobias was like a hard egg to crack but later on became soft for Tris Prior. The two fell in love and later on fought side by side to eliminate the faction leader in the movie. Tris became an inspiration and a hero to others after defeating the corrupted faction leader and eliminating their methods of killing divergents. Like many others Tris was curious about the outside world and was driven to seek answers. Her journey with Tobias and her crew continued in Insurgent the following movie.

While watching this movie I was very impressed that a female had such power and played the leading role. The whole world revolved around Tris and she was the key to many questions. GIRLS ROCK!!!

This is a great movie and is a perfect example of girl power. I highly recommend this movie for females who are empowered and are very proud of being a female. If you are going to see this movie, buckle up and have your popcorn ready. And I advise females not to watch this with their spouse because they might get jealous
