Divergent

Like many other big screen characters, Katniss Everdeen inspired fashion trends among her fans outside of the theater. Do you think Tris’ tattoo of three birds will encourage Divergent followers to get their own? Many of the other characters in this story also have inked images. How are tattoos portrayed both positively and negatively in the movie?

Eric appears to always be changing rules to suit him. Is it hard to respect a leader who makes regulations on a whim? Why are rules usually depicted as bad things in this movie? From a positive perspective, how do rules help regulate society?

One of Tris’ abilities as a divergent is to solve problems. When she is faced with challenges, Four tells her to calm herself and deal with what is in front of her. Is this good advice? Why is it important to be able to remain composed in a stressful or difficult situation?

This movie is based on a novel by Veronica Roth. The studio has high hopes for this film adaptation.
