Movie: The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

Fight for Your Fate.

The Adjustment Bureau (2011) is a thriller movie with a strong love story.

Synopsis: Young, idealistic, and ambitious politician David Norris (Matt Damon) is about to win a seat in the US Senate when he meets
Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt), a beautiful contemporary ballet dancer. Just as he realizes he's falling for her, mysterious men clad in hat and coat conspire to deny their plan to be together.

Eventually, David learns that he's going against the agents of Fate and these men will do anything in their considerable power to prevent him from being together with Elise. In the face of overwhelming odds, he must either let her go and accept a predetermined path or stay together with her and sacrifice their predetermined future.

This is a very interesting movie. First of all, it's a love story, no doubt. As simple as it may sound, I find the storyline intriguing and I like the way romance and passion are portrayed in this movie. Love is not just about lust or physical contact. Love is about going all the way to be with the someone who makes your life go "upside-down" the moment the two of you decide to be together.

The second interesting aspect of this movie is that it explores the debatable question for ages: Do we control our destiny? Or do unseen forces manipulate us? Is our life controlled by fate? Having said that, this movie touches the presence of God (known as the Chairman in the movie) and angels (known as the case workers in the movie) as well as the concepts of free will and predestination. In fact, according to the director, George Nolfi, the "intention of this film is to raise questions."

Well, to be honest, I don't know whether it's a matter of free will or predestination or both that brings two persons together. Perhaps the answer can be found in this article: Chance or Choice? Think about it.

This movie is highly recommended for sentimental souls out there. :)
