Synopsis / Plot
Insurance adjuster Noah (Elias Koteas) works with people who have suffered the loss of their homes and other disasters. He gets a little too involved with his clients, taking advantage of their vulnerability to control their lives--while only having the most glancing interactions with his own wife, Hera (Arsinee Khanjian), who secretly videotapes the porn films she watches for a government censor board. When another couple (Maury Chaykin & Gabrielle Rose) poses as part of a film crew who want to use Noah and Hera's house, Noah moves his family into the motel where he houses his displaced clients, bringing his separate worlds too close together. Though initially mysterious and distanced, The Adjuster builds carefully to a striking sense of loss and sorrow. As in his earlier films, Canadian auteur Atom Egoyan explores how people evade and contain the traumas in their lives.
