Although the two are clearly smitten, events conspire to keep them apart for several years. Finally finding each other through another fortuitous meeting, they vow to stay together, but David discovers a sinister force at work, hell-bent on splitting them up.
The Adjustment Bureau is a mysterious group of individuals charged with ensuring events follow a set plan, devised by an individual known as the 'The Chairman'. With the couple's romance running contrary to their scheme, David will have to use all his cunning to save their relationship, and his own sanity.
Based on a short story by Philip K Dick, the visionary author whose works formed the basis for Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report, The Adjustment Bureau is a considerable change of pace from the usual science fiction fare. Essentially a love story with sci-fi trappings, debut director George Nolfi's film risks being neither fish nor fowl, but still offers up an endearing romance, an intriguing mystery and plenty of pulse-pounding chase scenes.
Also look out for John Slattery, Mad Men's indefatigable Roger Sterling, as Bureau goon Richardson, whose presence helps alleviate the script's weightier conceits. Nolfi was previously best known as the screenwriter of The Bourne Ultimatum and Ocean's Twelve, and although he gets considerable mileage out of the intriguing premise, it's a shame the ending feels like it's been re-filmed to satisfy a test audience.
