The Adjustment Bureau

George Nolfi | 2011 | ★★★½
A young congressman (Matt Damon) discovers that his will is not as free as he had once thought, when he accidentally comes across a clandestine organisation of non-humans (possibly heavenly) whose job it is to ensure that no one strays from The Chairman’s grand plan. Threatened with lobotomisation if he were ever to reveal their existence, he quickly and quietly goes back to living his life. However, when it becomes evident that they will prevent him from being with the girl of his dreams (Emily Blunt), he foolhardily begins to fight back, in this thrilling romantic fantasy. With the feel of a Hitchcockian wrong man thriller, driven by the excellent performances of Damon and Blunt, Nolfi’s film entertains throughout.
