YOUR FATE HAS BEEN ADJUSTED.
Congressman David Norris (Matt Damon), who has a very promising future, meets and instantly falls in love with a dancer (Emily Blunt)… but soon learns from grim-looking men in suits and hats that she’s not part of The Plan. Another adaptation of a Philip K. Dick story that is easy on the eyes, with its chilly New York City locations, and attractive performances by Damon and Blunt as the lovers who were never meant to fall for each other. It’s an elegant, romantic albeit lightweight story about how little chance affects our lives, and its amusing supernatural ingredients create a well-needed level of tension.
