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.

Cosmopolitan’s artist in residence finds abundance in trash

By Cindi Reed

Artist Steven Spann is working on a painting comprised of waste from the recent Strokes concert at the Cosmopolitan. It’s a swirling mass of found objects integrated into one canvas with the help of some black and white paint. As he points out the shoes thrown onstage, the lost-and-found hoodie, food wrappers from the Green Room, T-shirt order slips and ticket stubs, clusters of hotel guests pause to watch through the glass walls. Which is exactly what they’re supposed to do—although Spann would prefer they come inside for a chat or even donate some trash of their own.
