George Nolfi, the writer of Matt Damon's The Bourne Ultimatum
, makes his directorial debut with The Adjustment Bureau
, which is based on a short story by Philip K. Dick. The Adjustment Bureau
again pairs Nolfi with Damon, who stars as a charismatic politician who meets and falls in love with a ballet dancer (Emily Blunt
). Damon soon learns that mysterious, powerful forces are at work to keep the two apart for the rest of their lives. Should he defy fate or risk everything for love?
What is marketed as an "action thriller" is really more of a romantic drama, so adjust your expectations before you catch The Adjustment Bureau on DVD and Blu-ray on June 21. Both versions contain deleted and extended scenes, commentary with Nolfi as well as a featurette on the race-to-the-courthouse scene, an interview with Damon about his first true romantic leading role and a look at Blunt's ballet training and transformation. The Blu-ray adds immersive bells and whistles, including "The Labyrinth of Doors: An Interactive Map of New York."
