Thursday, September 3, 6 p.m., Thursday Night Movie: Insurgent (PG-13)

“In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she’s Divergent and won’t fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it’s too late.”
Common Sense Media recommends this film for people 14 and older: “Based on the best-selling dystopian books by Veronica Roth, Insurgent continues the story of heroine Tris (Shailene Woodley) and her love, Four (Theo James). Like the first movie, Insurgent is less violent than the book, but there’s still mass shootings of mind-control trackers, execution-style murders, torture, and a fake death.”
