"Divergence" is the story of two people at a crossroads in their lives. Tim Lawson, a helicopter pilot wounded in Iraq and looking for some peace, has come to the seaside community with the dread of his imminent return to the war. Clare O'Neil has lost her husband and child to a drunk driver, and now has sequestered herself in a small beach-front bungalow in the middle of winter. Blocking out contact with friends and family, she exists in a haze of prescription pills and alcohol. These two lost and broken people come together and find in each other the will to begin their lives anew. Written by P. Donnelly

User Reviews

Very moving story and beautifully shot
9 June 2007 | by waltersaSee all my reviews

I got the opportunity to see this film at a local film festival and was very impressed. This is a deeply emotional movie about coping with the past and finding a way to move forward. The acting was very good and I was able to get emotionally invested in the three main characters. I was drawn to them and could almost feel their pain. One of the major strengths of "Divergence" is the beautiful photography. It was filmed in a very scenic town along the coast of New Jersey. The use of ocean, sunsets, birds, and moon really enhanced this film greatly. I highly recommend this film, as it was a very well executed and insightful movie.
