The Adjustment Bureau by George Nolfi, 2011 (PG-13)

with Matt Damon (Hereafter, Invictus, Inside Job, Margaret, The Informant, True Grit), Emily Blunt (Looper, The Five-Year Engagement, Wild Target), Anthony Mackie (Man on a Ledge, The Hurt Locker), Terence Stamp, John Slattery (Mad Men), Michael Kelly (Did you Hear About The Morgans?), Anthony Ruivivar

A congressman (Matt Damon) who's a rising star on the political scene finds himself entranced by a beautiful ballerina (Emily Blunt), but mysterious circumstances ensure that their love affair is predestined to be a non-starter. Screenwriter George Nolfi (The Bourne Ultimatum) makes his directorial debut with this romantic adaptation of Philip K. Dick's classic sci-fi short story "Adjustment Team".

I really loved the concept of a life that is not entirely of our own, where decisions are made upon a bigger scheme, with people more or less knowledgeable of what is going on, and some guy who becomes aware while he shouldn't. It felt in a way a mix between one of my favorite movie "Dark City" and "The Matrix". The acting is good, the rhythm as well. They turned the story a little bit too much into a romantic drama, but it was worth the watch.
