Christina and Beatrice (Zoë Kravitz, Shailene Woodley) leap off an elevated train onto a rooftop to prove their bravery in “Divergent.” The movie is about a city in the near future in which everyone must conform to certain factions based on their personality traits.

If you only got the chance to hang out with one clique in high school, with any luck you wouldn't adhere yourself to people you wound up hating for four years just because you were going through a phase. For the young people of "Divergent," changing your whole identity involves a bit more pressure than just having to wear goth makeup because all your friends do.
