Lisa Miller, a Tahoe-based movie reviewer said, “Post-apocalyptic Chicago is a walled-off land housing members of former factions.

“Classified as Divergent because she fits into no faction, heroine Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) and her boyfriend Four (Theo James), with help from Four’s estranged mother Evelyn (Naomi Watts) and Evelyn’s rebel army, have freed the populace from its iron-fisted ruler Janine (Kate Winslet).”
