'Divergent' 2014: Assigning factions to some of the new year's biggest movies
In “Divergent,” the Chicago-set adaptation of Veronica Roth’s novel that’s also the most-anticipated movie of early 2014, society is divided into factions emphasizing bravery (Dauntless), honesty (Candor), intelligence (Erudite), selflessness (Abnegation) and peacefulness (Amity). A person inconclusively split between them is called Divergent, and one unable to join a group is Factionless.
