Divergent Book and Movie Fansite
Recently confirmed as Divergent Movie's Tris, Shailene Woodley, is currently showcasing her movie The Spectacular Now at the Sundance Film Festival and her acting is getting some great reviews from critics.
Some critics were skeptical of Shailene's acting ability due to her break out performance in Secrets of an American Teenager show on ABC. Then she wowed audiences in The Descendants with George Clooney. It seems this third big performance is validating our Tris as an amazing actress! Read all the rave reviews below.
For Woodley, this is also a confirmatory performance more than an eye-opener. The gap between the poised, unaffected actress in "The Descendants" and the wooden star of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" was so vast that any amount of skepticism was well-earned. After watching Woodley in "The Spectacular Now," the weight of blame shifts fairly conclusively to the ABC Family drama. Capable of shifting between wallflower and camera-friendly starlet with organic ease, there's a vulnerability and openness to Woodley that's well-matched with Teller's defensive wise-cracking.
