Future hu­mankind isn’t grouped ac­cord­ing to race or reli­gion. In­stead, virtues are used to split so­ci­ety into groups. But what hap­pens if you’re a di­ver­gent and don’t fit ex­actly into one spe­cific group­ing? That’s what Tris finds out and it’s not go­ing to be easy for her and her fel­low di­ver­gents, be­cause be­ing in this de­nom­i­na­tion ends in a oneway trip to cer­tain death. Why it’s hot: it looks good and has an in­ter­est­ing and cool sci-fi premise. And there’s kick-ass act­ing from shai­lene wood­ley (The se­cret life Of The amer­i­can Teenager, 2008-2013), who steals the spot­light as Tris from big­ger stars like Ash­ley Judd (last seen in 2013 movie Olym­pus Has Fallen) and Tony Gold­wyn (who we know bet­ter as The Fixer’s Pres­i­dent Fitz, 2012-cur­rent).
