Divergent

I have tepid interest in all of these YA movies – even for The Hunger Games, I find it OK, but it doesn’t really grab me – but I did want to check Divergent out because of the sci-fi setting, and because I like¬†Shailene Woodley. I liked this. Sure, the premise is kinda hokey – society is divided in 5 classes, to which everyone must conform – but if you just accept that that’s what you’re playing with, there’s an interesting story to tell, of how these classes interact with other (and affect each other). I know there are 2 more movies coming, and I’m definitely looking forward to the next one, based on how this one ends. Also, great use of Woodkid’s “Run Boy Run” track.
