The eagerly anticipated new film ‘Divergent’ will be released in Offaly on April 4. Based on the worldwide bestseller, the film is set in a futuristic Chicago, society which is divided into five factions based on personality type, created to bring everlasting peace.

On a given day each year, all sixteen year olds must take a test and choose where they belong.

For Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) the choice is not an easy one. In a divided existence where everyone must conform, Tris is divergent – a danger to this seemingly perfect world.

Forced to hide this deadly secret, Tris chooses dauntless and is drawn to her enigmatic mentor, Four (Theo James), who appears to both threaten and protect her. As a dangerous conflict develops amongst the factions, Iris must rely on her own strength and courage not only to survive, but to save the people she loves.

This year’s hottest new action-adventure is directed by Neil Burger and stars Shailene Woodley (The Descendants), Theo James (The Inbetweeners), Kate Winslet (Contagion), Zoe Kravtiz (X-Men: First Class), Miles Teller (That Awkward Moment), Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard) and Maggie Q (Mission: Impossible III).
