Summer Movie at the Library
Newburgh Free Library will be showing Divergent
On Thursday August 21st at 6pm
The Newburgh Free Library will be offering a free showing of Divergent on August 21st from 6-8:30pm. The story takes place in a dystopian post-apocalyptic world where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues. Those known as the "Divergents" will never fit into any one of the factions and discover a sinister plot is brewing against them.
Ages welcomed are adults and teens. It will be showed in the auditorium.
I have been waiting to see this movie so bad, if I could get a sitter I would probably go to the event. I want to see if Tris and Four in the movie live up to the Tris and Four in my head. It wasn't till I saw the movie trailers that I actually wanted to read the book. It was great though, read it in a night.
In this future setting of the Divergent world we are split up into factions, on an appointed day in their 16th year children must choose a faction after taking a placement test designed to match them to a faction. The factions are based on human virtues.
- Dauntless (the brace)
- Amity (the peaceful)
- Erudite (the intelligence)
- Abnegation (the selfless)
- Candor (the honest)
