"The Adjustment Bureau" Scene on Top Of The Rock @ Rockefeller Center

The Top of the Rock was used in a pivotal final scene in the 2011 film "The Adjustment Bureau" starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.

In the film Damon is ambitious politician named David Norris who meets Elise Sellas, a contemporary ballet dancer, played by Blunt. As he realizes he is falling for her, mysterious men conspire to keep them apart. The mystery men are members of The Adjustment Bureau who will everything in their power to prevent David and Elise from being together. They were never intended to meet and for her sake, David must not see her again.

The scene on the top of 30 Rockefeller Center (Top of the Rock) is where David and Elise makes a final stand against The Adustment Bureau to bind their fates together.

Roger Ebert wrote in his review: "The Adjustment Bureau" is a smart and good movie that could have been a great one if it had a little more daring. I suspect the filmmakers were reluctant to follow its implications too far. What David and Elise signify by their adventures, I think, is that we're all in the this together, and we're all on our own. If you follow that through, the implications are treacherous to some, not all, religions. In the short term, however, the movie is a sorta heartwarming entertainment.
