Limitless (PG-13)

★★★☆☆

In this speedy thrill ride, Bradley Cooper plays underachiever Eddie, whose luck changes when he takes NZT, a drug that allows him to use his full potential. Eddie must scramble to procure more doses, as he becomes a Wall Street wiz, wins back his girlfriend and achieves his dreams. Limitless isn’t a perfect sci-fi thriller, but it strikes an ecstatic chord of premonition. And it gives you a fleeting sense of what it might be like to be the smartest person in the world.

The Adjustment Bureau (PG-13)

Politician David Norris (Matt Damon) is a blue-collar hotshot politician who falls for a beautiful dancer named Elise (Emily Blunt) in this sci-fi story where a handful of hat-wearing men run the planet. These “adjusters” monitor anomalies, e.g., the unplanned meeting of Elise and David. Their job is to make corrections for such irregularities so that all goes according to “their” predetermined plan. This is a simple story about love and free will. It works.
