The Adjustment Bureau

Matt Damon just keeps finding ways to make me love him, and The Adjustment Bureau looks like it will give me one more reason to be a fan. Starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, this romantic thriller takes you through the journey of two people who fall in love – and then find that they are simply pawns in a greater scheme.

Imagine finding out that everything you have ever done in your life was somehow predetermined, and that the choices you have made are controlled by some unseen forces behind a figurative curtain. Rising politician David Norris (Matt Damon) meets gorgeous ballerina, Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt) and the two of them fall in love, the way perfect people tend to do. However, just as David becomes invested in his relationship with Elise, he finds that he is actually up against Fate itself – he can either follow a predetermined path that does not involve Elise, or he can fight Fate in an attempt to be with her. The odds don’t look good for a happy ending, but just watching the preview makes me want to scream, “FIGHT FOR HER, DAVID!! YOU FIGHT FOR HER THIS INSTANT!!” Damon is always choosing diverse and interesting roles, and it seems that this film is no exception.
