"Divergent" movie quotes bring the novel of the same name by Veronica Roth to life on the big screen. The story follows one girl who does not fit into the defined factions in her dystopian society and is hunted as a result. The science fiction action movie was directed by Neil Burger using a screenplay adapted by Evan Daugherty and Vanessa Taylor.

In "Divergent," a futuristic and dystopian Chicago is home to the Prior family of parents Andrew (Tony Goldwyn) and Natalie (Ashley Judd) and children Caleb (Ansel Elgort) and Beatrice "Tris" (Shailene Woodley). like all kids do at that age, Tris undergoes testing to determine in which of the five factions, as established by the civilization's founders to keep the peace, she belongs. Her tests, as Tori (Maggie Q) tells her, however come back with the rare determination that she is divergent and those does not fit into any faction. Natalie urges Tris to find a faction and fit in the best she can for her own safety.

Tris joins the Dauntless faction but is soon found out to be an impostor by Tobias "Four" Eaton (Theo James). Four vows to help, not hurt Tris and is inspired by her fearless outlook on life. She'll need more than just that fearlessness though as Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet), leader of Erudite, is on a mission to hunt down all the divergents, Tris included.
