They didn't really belong there, but there they were.

Film: Adam

Starring: Hugh Dancy and Rose Byrne

Synopsis: Adam, a lonely man with Asperger's Syndrome, develops a relationship with his upstairs neighbor, Beth.

Grade: B


This movie was very moving to me. Although this movie is about a guy with Asperger's Syndrome, it was really an afterthought to the story in my mind. This movie was real. It dealt with weird quirks, insecurities, comfortable co-dependence, and fearing change. Everyone was dealing with these issues in the movie, not just Adam. I loved how this movie was mostly about finding the perfect situation and support to magnify one's talents and skills. At least, that is what I got out of it. I found myself relating to so many parts of this film, and feeling so blessed that i found a perfect situation to work on magnifying my strengths.
