The Adjustment Bureau (Quick Pick)
Reason for the Rating: Brief strong language, some sexuality, and a violent image.
PopFam Rating: B+
Quick Summary: The Adjustment Bureau is billed as a "romantic thriller" and it does deliver (mostly) in that regard. But the real thrill of this Philip K. Dick short story adaptation lies in its unique exploration of divine sovereignty and human free will. Supernatural beings (angels perhaps?) work to prevent two young lovers from spending their lives together, but neither heaven nor earth can them apart forever...can they? An interesting and thought-provoking story, parents and teens can enjoy this one together - and talk about it afterward. The MPAA rating covers mild PG-13 elements only (one use of the F-word, implied extra-marital sex, and mild violence).
