The Adjustment Bureau

Since I knew this movie was based on a story by P. K. Dick, I was expecting a good dose of paranoia, and that's just what I got. The less said about the plot, the better, so I'll just give you the basics.

Matt Damon plays David Norris. Once the country's youngest congressman, he's now running for the senate. He and Emily Blunt, meet cute in a men's room. They immediately feel a powerful attraction to each other, but there are forces intent on keeping them apart.

Do we have free will, or are all our actions part of some bigger plan? What part does chance play in our lives? Those are the questions raised in the movie.

Matt Damon gives a performance that makes you wish he'd actually run for office, and Emily Blunt is fine, too. If you're looking for a little romantic fantasy, this movie might be the answer. Check it out.

    We liked it too, other than the scene where he was walking in the Village, turned the corner, and was in Central Park.
