PRE-SCREENING FILM REVIEW: Matt Damon’s “The Adjustment Bureau”

Life is a series of events…

Fate or Free Will?

YOUR Life Adjusted…

Of course, everyone knows how much I love a good science-fiction/fantasy film.

As the world is well-aware, I’m a huge “Lord of the Rings” and “Harry Potter” fan, so when I was invited to a pre-screening of the new Emily Blunt and Matt Damon film, “The Adjustment Bureau,” I was so there.

Labeled as a metaphysical-science-fiction-romantic thriller, the film, is loosely based on the 1954 short story, the “Adjustment Team,” by Philip K. Dick.

The film, itself, was written and produced by George Nolfi, with a score by Thomas Newman, (who wrote the song for the opening sequence, “Future Bright”) and Richard Ashcroft (end credits, “Are You Ready”).

While, she may share her name with William Shakespeare’s wife, old school, out-dated and “so over,” are in a land far, far, away.

Many women who get invited to attend the Oscars stress over the one perfect dress to wear.

But Hathaway, styled by Rachel Zoe (we dieeee!), wore seven enchanting ensembles, plus, one extra on the red-carpet for good measure.

Dress after dress, Hathaway looked graceful, fun and pulled off each outfit with ease and poise.

Oh, how we love you Amelia Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi, Crown Princess of Genovia.
