The Adjustment Bureau – PH Film Preview

As of March Friday 3.4.11 The Adjustment Bureau has finally made it’s long awaited debut after having it’s release date moved forward to follow the 2011 Academy Awards show which indicates that it may very well have been worth the wait.

Do we control our destiny, or do unseen forces manipulate us? Matt Damon stars in the thriller The Adjustment Bureau as a man who glimpses the future Fate has planned for him and realizes he wants something else. To get it, he must pursue the only woman he’s ever loved across, under and through the streets of modern-day New York.

On the brink of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, ambitious politician David Norris (Damon) meets beautiful contemporary ballet dancer Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt)–a woman like none he’s ever known. But just as he realizes he’s falling for her, mysterious men conspire to keep the two apart.

David learns he is up against the agents of Fate itself–the men of The Adjustment Bureau–who will do everything in their considerable power to prevent David and Elise from being together. In the face of overwhelming odds, he must either let her go and accept a predetermined path…or risk everything to defy Fate and be with her.

The Adjustment Bureau is written for the screen and directed by George Nolfi (writer of Ocean’s Twelve, co-writer of The Bourne Ultimatum). It is based on a short story by Philip K. Dick (“Total Recall,” “Minority Report” and “Blade Runner”).

The plot indicates that it may be one of those rare occasions when it is feasible to actually go to the cinema as opposed to waiting for the DVD release as the short story which was written by Philip Dick which lead to the screen version inspires my writing ventures as the prior Sci Fi stories written by him have added the mysterious element of factual reality to be embedded into the fictional narratives which is said to play a large part in capturing the interest of the audience.

If you get to see it before I do, please feel free to share your own responses.

On with the show.
