The Adjestment Bureau‘Free will’. We take it for granted in this day and age. While there are people who believe in fate, some of us feel we control our destiny by our decisions, and the choices we make are ours, and ours alone!
 

David Norris (Matt Damon) comes face to face with a reality he wouldn’t have imagined. On the verge of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, he loses it to published controversial news. A chance meeting with a captivating woman minutes before his concession speech, induces an act of impulse, which makes him a fore- runner in the next election. 
 

3 years later he’s at the predicted position in the elections.
By ‘chance’ he meets the The Adjustment Bureauwoman again. A dancer, he learns, christened Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt). But this is wrong he is told. It isn’t a part of the plan! What is the plan? Who makes it? Why can’t he do what he wants? What if he doesn’t want what the plan states should be his? These are the questions that surge through him when ‘The Adjustment Bureau’ is accidentally exposed to him.
 

Somehow, the fact that the Bureau consists of men in hats, who live among us, controlling us sometimes to put us back on the path of our destiny, doesn’t seem very bizarre. The plot is so convincing, that you don’t find it odd that they carry books displaying the future or that they refer to files for a person’s path in life. It certainly is baffling in the beginning, when it strikes you that these ‘angels’ follow a corporate and legal system, and refer to the Master of the universe as ‘the chairman’.
 

The movie slowly reveals facts that lead to thrilling repercussions. The intensity of the romance and the chemistry of the actors is not lost in the maze of doors and tunnels. It stands strong as the base for this desperate battle against fate. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt are extremely convincing as the strangers who just know that they are meant for each other.
 

The characters are relatable, with references to their past and backgrounds, which balances the surreal surroundings. The emotional connect created gets you even more involved as you hope for the best to happen. The movie is engrossing and played out well. It’s biggest strength is that the concept is easy to grasp despite the complicated nature of it. 

The Adjustment Bureau

It has you captured from beginning to end. A fast paced novel on screen.
