Release date: March 4, 2011
There are things we as a society are not supposed to see. Whether it is governmental, religious, or even sports related, we are just encouraged to keep our eyes shut and our curiosity should be forever crippled. This is a bleak idea to assume, but conspiracies are out there, people. It is faintly perceptible what exactly it is the government, or whatever branch of society you want to look at, is trying to hide, accomplish, or complete. It is far above my paygrade to surmise. Some people, though, abide by the rules (turning away and crippling curiosity), and others just insist on testing the waters, seeing what may occur if one digs deeper. Persistent and courageous some appear to be who aren’t content with just sitting back. They want to uncover, they want to contemplate, and they want to say, “Hey, I know what’s really going on and I’m not OK with it!” Ewan McGregor did this last year in Ghost Writer and Jack Nicholson did it over 35 years ago in Chinatown. The decision to plunge deeper into a corrupted abyss can have fatal ramifications. Matt Damon, you are up. It is now your turn to make the plunge.
Â The Adjustment Bureau places Matt Damon as David Norris, a charismatic New York congressman who is running for Senator. Damon looks the part (his exuberance and charm). He can be associated, in the few scenes we see of him running for Senator, with John F. Kennedy. But comparisons are for a later time. When David is practicing his concession speech in a grand bathroom he believes he is alone. A pin or earring hits the floor, catching the attention of David. There emerges out of a stall a beautiful and intoxicating lady, Elise, a professional ballerina played elegantly by Emily Blunt. With ease and delicacy the two begin a conversation as if they’ve been familiar with one another for years.
