The Adjustment Bureau is a new science fiction film in the mould of Inception, that’s light on the science and heavy on the fiction. It stars Matt Damon as a potential New York Senator with a knack for letting his emotions ruin his chances for success and Emily Blunt as a care free ballet dancer who captivates Mr. Damon. Over the course of several years they inexplicably bump into one another through several bouts of random chance. The problem is that they aren’t supposed to. Their lives are kept separate by a shadowy organisation who call themselves “The Adjustment Bureau”. The Adjustment Bureau are made up of a bunch of middle aged men in hats whose job it is to make sure things go “According to Plan” and they are baffled at how, without even meaning to, the protagonists constantly manage to mess the plan up, and set about keeping these two star crossed lovers apart.
