What is the guiding force behind our lives? Are our decisions made from free will or are our happenstance a matter of fate? These are the burning questions one is left with after watching the movie, THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU. I recently got a chance to check out this brand new flick when Liquid Soul Media produced a 20-market HBCU advance screening tour for the film.
THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU, starring Matt Damon and Anthony Mackie is a must see. It’s one of those movies that entertains you, keeps you on the edge of your seat, sprinkles in a good love story, and makes you think… really… really… think. Howard University hosted the screening in Washington, DC. We were treated to a question and answer session after the movie with one of the movies stars, Anthony Mackie, and the film’s Director, George Nolfi. Mackie is best known for his feature films, television series and Broadway and Off-Broadway plays, including Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Drowning Crow, and Talk.
Nolfi, who is also the screenwriter for the film, is responsible for such blockbusters as The Bourne Ultimatum, Ocean’s Twelve and The Sentinel. In THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU, Nolfie brought to life the affair between a politician and a ballerina affected by mysterious forces keeping the lovers apart through twists and turns that will leave you wondering about your own life by the time the film is over.
Make sure you add this movie to your things to do list when THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU opens up nationwide on March 4th, 2011. I’m giving it two thumbs up!
THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU Do we control our destiny or do unseen forces manipulate us? Matt Damon stars in the thriller The Adjustment Bureau as a man who glimpses the future Fate has planned for him and realizes he wants something else. To get it, he must pursue the only woman he’s ever loved across, under and through the streets of modern-day New York.www.theadjustmentbureau.com
