Product Summary

Double bill of sci-fi adventures based on the first two novels in Veronica Roth's trilogy. Set in a future where society is divided into five distinct factions based on personality traits, 'Divergent' (2014) follows Beatrice 'Tris' Prior (Shailene Woodley) as she undergoes a test to determine which faction she belongs to. Afterwards, she finds out she meets the criteria for more than one and is therefore Divergent - a rare occurrence which puts her and others like her in danger. Her secret is known only to a small number of people and she is forced to make a decision about which faction to join. In the end, she opts for Dauntless, a faction made up of the brave, and as she undergoes initiation, her fellow members begin to grow suspicious of her and her behaviour. On top of this, she also uncovers a plot by another faction's leader, Jeanine (Kate Winslet), to seek out and destroy all Divergents, making the potential threat of exposure all the more dangerous. In the sequel 'Insurgent' (2015), Tris and Four (Theo James) are on the run as the separate factions continue to be torn apart by war and inner conflict. The divergents frantically search for reasons behind the violent uprising as they continue to be hunted by its initiator Jeanine. The group visits the other faction's compounds in their search for allies as defectors choose sides for the looming war. But as Tris struggles with the horrors and grief of previous events she finds out some shocking truths about the origin and future of their fractured world.
