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.

Brooklyn Bound

White Irish Drinkers is a thoughtful coming-of-age story with bracing performances, solid writing and direction by John Gray, and inescapable take-home values that give you a feel-good lift. Set in 1975 in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, it tells the story of a bright, sensitive 18-year-old named Brian Leary (charismatic newcomer Nick Thurston) from a working-class family grappling with hardships to make ends meet and find purpose in a bleak existence.
