    A romantic character study examining the obstacles to intimacy and the compromises we make in the name of love, Adam stars Hugh Dancy as a man living with Asperger's syndrome who does his best to reach out to his pretty new upstairs neighbor. Due to his condition, Adam isn't the best when it comes to communicating. Though he frequently escapes by submersing himself in the world of space exploration, Adam senses an opportunity for a real human connection after Beth (Rose Byrne) moves into the apartment just upstairs. As Adam attempts to gain control of his off-kilter, sometimes embarrassing social skills, he discovers that with a little patience and understanding, developing a meaningful relationship might not be as hard as he previously thought. Peter Gallagher, Amy Irving, Frankie Faison, and Mark Linn-Baker co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Great movie! Both sad and funny!


      Being a parent of autistics, it was refreshing to see something that was not overdramatized like "Rainman." Hugh Dancy does a great job of portraying a man with AS as he struggles with the loss of his father. He doesn't really mourn his father, but change is such a devastating event for someone on the spectra. Rose Byrne does a great job as she tries to figure out how a romance works with someone with AS. The back and forth between them is both tragic and sweet. Good date night movie for at home.

      Touching and sweet film- superbly acted and one of Rose Byrne's first major roles. Came out around the same time as 500 Days of Summer, and has the same kind of indie vibe.

      Adam reminds me a little of Celeste and Jesse Forever and 500 Days of Summer. It's a modern Rom Com with a twist.
