The action suspense thriller “The Adjustment Bureau” from Universal Pictures was written and directed by George Nolfi based on a short story by Philip K. Dick. Starring: Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Anthony Mackie, Terence Stamp, Natalie Carter, Jon Stewart, Lisa Thoreson, Florence Kastriner, Phyllis McBryde, Darrell Lenormand, George Lay, Kar, Michael Kelly, RJ Konner, Susan D. Michaels and Chuck Scarborough as himself.
In this tense psychological drama, the story unfolds around the fate of the two main characters; David Norris (Matt Damon) a prominent politician with ambition plus the backing to win a seat in the US Senate and a mysterious celebrity ballerina, Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt).
The film is focused on the premise of how much do our actions affect our destiny, or if no matter what choices we make or don’t make, our lives run a certain course. David is given the rare opportunity to glimpse the result of what appeared to be his pat would be and begins to have second thoughts.
But after deciding that he wants more than just fame and fortune, he meets Elise and their relationship begins to develop into love. Yet unbeknownst to them, their union is less than desired by some. Suddenly the two of them find themselves at odds with forces whose sole mission appears to be to keep them apart.
As the challenges to Elise and David become greater, Elise is just as bewildered about why these events are happening to them as David is and begins to wonder what it all means. Slowly the mystery around the entities behind the series of events that lead David on a journey through modern-day New York in search of Elise begins to unravel. Having seen the future even for a brief moment and choosing to do otherwise is not exactly making the men of the Adjustment Bureau jump for joy.
The real test for David beyond his emotional attachment to Elise is how far will he go to get what he wants and how much will it take for him to reach his breaking point? As the agents of Fate close in and keep the pressure coming, David realizes that ultimately he will have to make a choice between letting Elise go or be prepared to accept the consequences of being on the wrong side of some powerful forces.
