The Adjustment Bureau

One of my pet peeves about contemporary media is the tendency of movie trailers to give away major plot points.  After seeing some trailers, I suspect I no longer need to see the whole film.

Having said that, I watched “The Adjustment Bureau” tonight, and it diverged from my expectations of it more than any other film I can remember seeing.  It was a good movie experience.  I am home alone tonight, with the rest of the family at the Ronald McDonald House at Children’s Memorial Hospital, and the movie made me think about how grateful I am for my family.

But I won’t say much more than that about the film, in case you haven’t seen it.  I thought it was a science-fiction movie, and it is.  At the same time, I think that it was a more personal and emotional brand of science-fiction than I am used to.  I suspect that there are a lot of people who assumed they would have no interest who would, in fact, enjoy it very much.
