    Plot Outline:

    The affair between a politician and a ballerina is affected by mysterious forces keeping the lovers apart.


    Plot: 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”).

    Movie Quotes:

    Elise Sellas: Were you just looking at my legs while I slept?
    David Norris: I was helpless against the dress.
    Elise Sellas: It's a skirt.
    David Norris: It's a belt!



    Goofs: We know about 5 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): After their second interview, Jon Stewart calls David Norris, “Kevin Norris”.

    Trivia: There are 5 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Abbie Cornish auditioned for a role.
    • Damon wears a baseball cap with the letter "F," standing for Fordham University where some of the movie was filmed.
    • Shohreh Aghdashloo and Daniel Dae Kim had original scenes in the movie, but those scenes ended up being cut from the final version of the film.
