The Divide tells the story of 7 individuals striving for a better life in modern day US and UK - where the top 0.1% owns as much wealth as the bottom 90%.

A Star Wars Fan Who Couldn't Sit Through This Movie
This is not a nostalgic behind the scenes look at the making of Star Wars or even interesting anecdotes from actors and extras, BUT rather a boring, rambling, stream of consciousness, insomnia curing, 90 minutes of irrelevant and otherwise unrelated "stories" from cast members, most of which you've never heard of. It has poor production value and a poor sound which makes some of the conversation exceedingly difficult to hear. The production values could be forgiven however, if the content was interesting. My wife, who is not as much of a Star Wars fan, pointed out that you would be hard pressed to find any meaningful reference to Star Wars in the first 40 minutes of this film. By the time a random soap opera clip "starring" an unknown was shown, I'd had enough. This is unfortunately one many of us waited for, but is one to miss. And rest assured, you won't miss much of anything.
