The Adjustment Bureau
Is Harry the Chairman?
No, I do not think that harry is the chairman. In the movie the chairman seems to be some mysterious entity that controls the whole bureau and directs all the plans that are going on. Yet at the same time that these plans are being developed Harry is working on trying to get David back onto his path. Also the way Harry acts makes me think that he is not the chairman. He is trying to help David but he has to be very secretive about it, almost like he will get in trouble if someone found out. Also near the end of the movie, Harry gets a message that the chairman would like to speak with him. This also leads me to believe that Harry is not the chairman.
When Harry said to Elise and Norris that the Chairman rewrote the plan, the book showed a blank space ahead for the two of them. What do you think that meant?
I think that means that the Chairman gave Norris and Elise control over their own plan, and there plan would be contentiously written as they lived their life's. Earlier in the move the bureau is talking about two times when humans got their own free will with no plan. They both backfired and horrible things happned such as the world wars. But I think after the chairman saw how determined Norris was he decided to give out a third time of free will (only for Norris and Elise). Thus they can write their own paths in life.
