The Adjustment Bureau
Matt Damon plays David Norris who is a New York politician who is campaigning for the Senate. He meets a free spirited young woman (Emily Blunt) who he falls in love with. Shortly after meeting her, a group of mysterious men who work for the Adjustment Bureau do all they can to keep the two of them from ever seeing each other again.
This is an original movie that makes you think about fate, choice, freedom, and destiny. It's also a love story. I am usually cynical of people who fall madly in love with each other after spending only 5 minutes together since they really don't know each other, but the performances by Damon and Blunt were pretty convincing.
