Yesterday’s happiness: Last night we went to see Divergent, which was brill! After a busy morning/early afternoon we decided to throw caution to the wind and go to the cinema. The options were extremely limited but we had a look at the Divergent trailer and took a gamble on it, much to our delight!
Divergent is set in the increasingly popular post-apocalyptic world – Chicago to be exact. After ‘the war’ the people who remained were split off into different groups or ‘fractions’ based on their personalities and virtues, which was supposed to prevent discord and further fighting. However, occasionally the test that is taken to determine the fraction to which a person belongs doesn’t quite work and the results are inconclusive – the people who end up in this category are known as divergents.
I won’t give the plot away but suffice to say it’s a really enjoyable watch and gets a 7.5 on IMDB. ^_^ Here’s the official trailer:
