55 Movies to Get You to Christmas – #51

The Adjustment Bureau
“You ruined me.”

    As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’m not really one for the mushy-gushy-sappy romantic chick flick sort of film that is stereotypically associated with people of my gender.  If I like a love story, it’s either depressing or action packed.  This one is both.
    Emily Blunt and Matt Damon steer this non-stop, sweet-hearted love story past through a maze of unfortunate circumstances and a question of the existence of free will.  Throughout the film, there are some mushy-gushy sort of themes like “love conquers all,” or “never give up when you’ve got your heart set on something,” or whatever, but it’s definitely on my list of must-see-movies, and it will definitely get you to Christmas.  All you need is a hat.
