DVD pick of the week: The Adjustment Bureau is thought-provoking, exciting, and swooningly romantic. Writer/director George Nolfi takes on the biggest questions of all — faith and doubt, fate and free will, God, love, the meaning of existence — with an absorbing story about who we are and why we do what we do. I have a copy to give away, so send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Adjustment Bureau” in the subject line, and don’t forget your address.
