Here is the plot description for “The Adjustment Bureau”:

Do we control our destiny or do unseen forces manipulate us? Matt Damon stars in the thriller “The Adjustment Bureau” as a man who glimpses the future fate has planned for him and realizes he wants something else. To get it, he must pursue the only woman he’s ever loved across, under and through the streets of modern-day New York.

On the brink of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, ambitious politician David Norris (Damon) meets beautiful contemporary ballet dancer Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt). She’s a woman like none he’s ever known. But just as he realizes he’s falling for her, mysterious men conspire to keep the two apart.

David learns he is up against the agents of fate itself – the men of The Adjustment Bureau – who will do everything in their considerable power to prevent David and Elise from being together. In the face of overwhelming odds, he must either let her go and accept a predetermined path or risk everything to defy fate and be with her.

“The Adjustment Bureau” is written for the screen and directed by George Nolfi (writer of “Ocean’s Twelve” and co-writer of “The Bourne Ultimatum”). It is based on a short story by Philip K. Dick (“Total Recall,” “Minority Report” and “Blade Runner”).

Do we control our own fate?

I think we have bit of a say with fate and destiny. We do have the power of choice. Yet I do believe whatever is meant to be will be! :)

FateWe control our fa

We control our fate, but only to a certain degree. There are some things that we won’t be able to control, but that’s what makes life so interesting.

Chtistian Cruz's picture

Yes. Yes we do.

I thoroughly believe that we control our own fate. Not because it’s illogical for anyone to predetermine our fate for us(it’s very possible indeed), but because I simply refuse to acknowledge anyone to be superior enough to do such a thing and control my fate. All my decisions I’ve made are mine alone, and the same goes for most people who are reading this comment. No one ever truly forces you to do anything, you can just as easily stand up to whoever is trying to push you around. You may get your butt whooped, but your independance will stand strong. No one controls my fate, and no one controls yours unless you let them.

Do we control our own fate?

First, we all should understand that s**t happens. The real answer to the question is, yes and no. The answer depends on the situation(s). Every situation is different. Although they may have similarities, they are still different. Sometimes we really do control our own fate. Our anticipated actions always bring about some kind of a response. On the other hand, unexpected things happen all the time that we honestly didn’t have a clue about. Who knew? We can drive ourselves crazy trying to figure out what we did wrong or what we could have done differently. Since we can’t go back in time and test such theories,(We’ll leave that to writers and Hollywood) we have not choice but to continue our lives and let the past be as it is. The fact remains, we don’t know everything. With that said, how can we control our own fate all the time?

There are obviously outside influences beyond our control, but overall I’d say yes. We can respond to the world around us and make it what we want it to be.

Do we control our fate?

Undeniably so in the majority of cases We are responsible for our actions, thoughts, words. Nonetheless in a snmall number of cases, there is divine intervention!

Jerri22's picture

Yes and No

To some degree. I believe there are somethings that are predetermined for us, like who we’re meant to be with, personality traits, some events in our life from minute we are born but I do think we have the option to change things if we really want to or if we make decisions that weren’t expected for us to make. Our life I feel like is outlined but we can always change it.

The Adjustment Bureau-Do we control our fate?

Yes we do to a certain extent, different situations, but for love you will do anything for the other in the name of love.

chazziebelle's picture

of course we do

everything we go through is based on the decisions we make - when things do go wrong and things start to swerve it is up to us to handle the situation and get back on the road we are supposed to be driving on

    CHICAGO – Cherilyn Sarkisian… yes, that is her birth name… is the redoubtable Cher, and it’s perfect timing for her to have a jukebox musical tribute. “The Cher Show,” covering three eras/songs of the six-decade career of Cher, opens for a Chicago preview before its Broadway run, from June 12th through July 25th, 2018.

  • ThroatPunch

    CHICAGO – The provocative title of Sharon Krome’s new stage play, “ThroatPunch,” does not contain that particular fight technique. But it does have standout performances by the three person cast, as they make their way in Chicago, circa 1983, amid their emerging twentysomething punk rock attitude. The World Premiere of the show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through June 3rd, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
