Ambitious politician David is pursuing Elise – the only woman he has ever loved across, under and through the streets of modern day New York. David learns that he is up against the agents of Fate itself – the men of the Adjustment Bureau – who will do everything in their considerable power to prevent David and Elise from being together. In the face of overwhelming odds, he must either let her go and accept a predetermined path or risk everything to defy Fate and be with her. Starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. Rated PG-13.
