“All I have are the choices I make. And I choose her.”
You know that sort of sappy, romantic line is enough to sell me a movie. Throw Matt Damon and Emily Blunt in a romantic tale of two lovers who are not supposed to be together and I’m bound to watch it several times.
The Adjustment Bureau gets a lot of things wrong. It is poorly written with a half-hatched plot. The movie has an abrupt ending that leaves a lot to be desired. But it gets one thing right: Old white men in ridiculous hats run the world. And if we truly want to, we can defy them and change our fate.
