George J. Nolfi sure picked a nice little ditty for his directorial debut. “The Adjustment Bureau” is a feature-film adaptation of a Philip K. Dick story, and Nolfi got Matt Damon and Emily Blunt to star. The film doesn’t seem to be generating a whole lot of buzz as of this writing, but maybe that’ll change once you see the 7 clips we have posted from the movie below. Either/or, this looks like the clever, twisty sci-fi/drama that is right up my alley, which means, yes, I’ll probably end up loving it, but everyone else will end up hating it, or just ignoring it. Such is my lot in life, alas.
On the brink of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, ambitious politician David Norris (Matt 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.
Starring Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, John Slattery, Daniel Dae Kim , Terence Stamp, Anthony Mackie, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Michael Kelly, Shane McRae and directed by George J. Nolfi.
