The two star in the upcoming film, which follows Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior (Woodley), a teenager with a special mind, finds her life threatened when an authoritarian leader seeks to exterminate her kind in her effort to seize control of their divided society.
“It’s not just about young people figuring their way through life,” Shai shared with Hero Complex.
She added, “It’s about young people being in really adult situations, and they’re treated like adults, which is how adolescents are these days. Everybody’s incredibly smart, and there’s not a lot of movies that do that age range justice.”
Divergent opens March 21st.
