The Adjustment Bureau

They allowed us to lead the world into the Dark Ages, start World War I, bring the Earth to the brink of destruction with the Cuban Missile Crisis -- all in the name of free will. Realizing that our free will would destroy the Earth it was replaced with the illusion of free will. We do have control of the smaller things in life like what tooth paste to use or color socks to wear. But the weightier matters all are governed by broad parameters set by The Chairman and His caseworkers who indiscriminately roam amongst us ensuring we remain on-plan.

The Adjustment Bureau is about a future leader who has gone off-plan and The Chairman's efforts to get him back on course. Matt Damon plays New York Congressman David Norris who is leading the race for the U.S. Senate seat for the State of New York when he meets Elise, a dancer on the verge of greatness played by Emily Blunt. As the grand plan does not call for Elise and David to be together, the Bureau springs into action making minor adjustments in their schedules and commitments to ensure their separation. But their love appears to be greater than the Bureau's power to keep them apart.

At its core, The Adjustment Bureau is a romance for intelligent monitoring of world events. It was written for the intelligentsia who cannot believe an intelligent creator exists, but have the imagination to fantasize that a greater force does control the course of mankind.

It's a real ride that almost makes one forget Hollywood's the effort in avoiding any appearance of recognizing God while employing all of His effects to garner the attention of viewers.

If you haven't already seen it, it is worth the price of the rental.
