Dystopian films and books have become popular over the past few years. These tend to reflect the way in which society could possibly soon turn if expecting extremes. Dystopian literature and media also tend to have utopian elements as well. While the societies in these works are strict and controlling, they do offer something that our society could possibly benefit from. Divergent has this element. The population is broken up into five factions that represent the different types of people in society and separate those who would fight easily due to their personal morals. The Hunger Games on the other hand (when modern society crumbled) they punished their citizens for fighting the government. While yes there was a chance for riches in the Hunger Games, it took risking your life to get it. In addition, if one did win the Hunger Games they would have an extremely easy life due to riches and a free luxury house. Divergent does not have this part, as its utopian aspect is the fact different ideals are separated from each other. Utopian literature is a reflection that is a perceived direction society may go. In these stories, mirrors are a device used to symbolically state the universe of the film is a reflection not a reality.
There are several differences between the book and movie adaptation of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Some of these similarities are very clearly portrayed in the story, and several of the differences made profound changes in my perception of the story line. These changes included plot and the way the story was told.
While both The Hunger Games and Divergent are dystopian series with female leads that rebel and lose family, in Divergent the characters have more choice in their destiny while in the Hunger Games they live in fear of their future.

One of the hardest things for a director to do is to turn a book into a movie. There is a fine line between keeping the movie just like the book, and by barely crossing that line you can end up making a completely different vision than the book has set out for you. There are also many viewers out there that will completely hate the movie if it is nothing like the book that they read originally. The director has to realize that although there are many different types of audiences to please, that it still has to be a great movie that people cannot stop talking about.
The movie Divergent is based off the acclaimed novel by Veronica Roth which has sold millions of copies world-wide. It is mainly a coming of age story in a dystopian society that is beginning to undergo a revolution. The lead heroine, Tris, must suffer many tragedies before realizing who she is told to be and who she really is. Many films in this genre have common thematic elements such as tragedy, conformity, and betrayal. Divergent is a story of coming of age, because Tris undertakes a transformation caused by a revolution in a society that was built to protect against such a revolt.
The Hunger Games and Divergent demonstrate an exaggerated view of the extremes, society has come to, to minimise the drastic effects and repercussions that the present has caused this future dystopian society.

While The Underland Chronicles made Collins a well-known author, her next series in ratcheted up her celebrity status.

"We have so much programming coming at us all the time," she says. "Is it too much? Are we becoming desensitized to the entire experience? . . .I can't believe a certain amount of that isn't happening."
