I just finished watching The Adjustment Bureau on the recommendation of a friend. I’m surprised I didn’t see it in the theatre as I’m a big Matt Damon fan and I think Emily Blunt is fantastic to watch. Most likely I just got busy doing other things and it was out of the theaters before I made time to see it. For whatever reason, I missed it’s general release but on a recent trip, this was the movie that was being played coincidentally westbound and eastbound. Turns out maintenance hadn’t put the correct film on the westbound plane loading this one instead. So I was kind of getting the message that I should be watching this film. I’d put it in my Netflix queue but it was in the middle of the list. Alright, alright, I’ll watch it. Sheesh.
The story was very well done, with exciting twists and turns, love, dance, politics, religion, loss. You name it, it was in the film in a well crafted way. I most definitely can recommend it’s watching. But because of our descent and arrival at our destination, I missed the very last scene of the film so I was very happy to have it replayed on the journey home. And it holds up well to being replayed. I picked up things I’d missed before. Anywho the VO at the end, and I don’t think this will ruin the story for you, spoke about The Plan. The Plan for each of us. And how we have a choice. No matter what or how many obstacles are thrown in our path, we can choose go along with them on path of least resistance, or we can to plow right through them to achieve what we want. The second option isn’t going to be easy, but it’s going to be worth it. Just watch.
