The Adjustment Bureau
Sci-fi romance fights the odds to find love
The Adjustment Bureau, a new feature starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, falls into the category of entertaining, mainstream Hollywood efforts loosely based on the works of Philip K. Dick. The film uses a P.K.D. short story—“The Adjustment Team,” written in 1954—as its basic inspiration. There are elements (a traditionally religious worldview and a major romance) that Dick himself would never have penned. But there is a quirky sense of paranoia and a growing realization that the fabric of the universe is not quite what we perceive it to be—both of which are classic Dick moves.
