142. Adjustment Bureau

Adjustment Bureau is a supernatural conspiracy theory movie starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.

David Norris (Matt Damon) is an up and coming political figure who happens to bump into carefree Elise (Emily Blunt) during one of his campaign appearances. They had an immediate and intense connection which seemed like fate, but then everything went wrong and it seemed like they would never see one another again. Little did they know that's because there were people watching them and keeping them apart so that they would stay "on plan". These people are part of the adjustment bureau.

The Adjustment Bureau monitors the life plans of every individual in the world and if an individual gets too far off of course then they can come in and make "course corrections" to get that individual back on track. In Norris' plan he was never supposed to see Elise again, but he was determined that she was special and that he would see her again. In fact, he was so determined that after bumping into her on the bus by chance he rode that exact same bus for three years until he finally met her again.

At this point all heck breaks loose! They are chased by the Adjustment Bureau--led by Thompson (Terence Stamp). In the process Norris sees more and learns more about human's free will or lack there of than he ever wanted to know and he befriended his adjustment bureau handler who gives him some insider tips on avoiding the bureau.

The movie is fast paced and will make you think twice about whether or not you really have free will and choice. Great movie! Matt Damon does it again! It's still no Inception bu Adjustment Bureau definitely holds its own.
