Twilight’s Bella Swan or Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen won’t make you ditch the new heroine in town… Beatrice Prior, that you all know her by now as Tris! In fact, the Divergent Series is among one of the most successful young adult franchises, as Divergent (2014) grossed over $288million worldwide, which influenced the making of Insurgent. Following the events of the previous installment, Tris must confront her inner demons and continue her fight against a powerful alliance which threatens to tear her society apart, with the help from others on her side.
As she searches for allies and answers in the wake of the uprising, Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) are on the run. Being hunted by Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet), the leader of the Erudite faction, Tris and Four will race against time as they try to figure out what Abnegation sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them.
Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris faces one impossible challenge after another as she unlocks the truth about the past and ultimately the future of her world. Will the Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman who worked the script for Insurgent, make the middle chapter an unforgettable one of the Divergent trilogy?
