Posted Aug 27, 2018

The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) Jacob Oller Allegiant gives us a secondhand account of a similar tale watered down by artless interpretation. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2018

Posted Aug 27, 2018

Posted Aug 27, 2018

Posted Aug 27, 2018

Posted Aug 27, 2018

Posted Aug 27, 2018

Posted Aug 27, 2018
