Enter for a chance to win a special Divergent prize pack, courtesy of Dork Shelf and eOne Films, that includes a set of books, necklaces, a hooded sweatshirt, a copy of the film's soundtrack, and a pair of run-of-engagement passes to see the film!
The first thirty minutes of Divergent, the first in yet another young adult novel series trying to cash in on the success of The Hunger Games and the lack of Harry Potter in the marketplace, are really incomprehensibly bad. Then, almost miraculously, the film gives the audience two more hours of film and actually finds a way to make it entertaining.
We talk to Theo James, leading man of the next big YA novel adaptation Divergent about his character’s internal struggles, what being in a franchise could mean for his career, his fears of being objectified, why people seem to be drawn to dystopian narratives, and why he approaches every job the same way regardless of size or potential success.
Limitless is a story about smart people who make bad choices that turn them into even smarter people, who then make worse choices. It’s a light, well-made action-thriller about kickass unearned power and privilege, which brings the fun but never quite shows us the dark side that it keeps threatening to.
