Movies: More Hunger Less Games - Divergent

'Women warriors are on the rise again in American movies, and so, too, are hopes that they’ll be able to strike where it counts: in the industry’s executive suites.

Some of this faith can be traced, irrationally or exuberantly, to “The Hunger Games.”'

'There is a crucial difference: While Katniss Everdeen doesn’t make much room for romance in “The Hunger Games” (she has a revolution to lead), Tris Prior spends a whole lot of time wondering why her instructor pays attention to her.'

From the New York Times review:
