Movie recommendation - Adam

Adam (2009)
4/5

Soon after moving in, Beth, a brainy, beautiful writer damaged from a past relationship encounters Adam, the handsome, but odd, fellow in the downstairs apartment whose awkwardness is perplexing. Beth and Adam's ultimate connection leads to a tricky relationship that exemplifies something universal: truly reaching another person means bravely stretching into uncomfortable territory and the resulting shake-up can be liberating.

Adam is one of the most touching romantic comedies I've seen in a long time with a story so beautifully heartfelt and genuine! It has one of those rare, magic feelings to it that only happens when there is a chemistry between the actors themselves, but also between the actors and the script.

The story itself (about Adam, a man with Asperger's Syndrome who falls in love with his upstairs neighbour), is very compelling and also provides an insight into this, actually quite common, autism spectrum disorder, so it has kind of a double message. 
More movies like this please!!

Both Dancy (known from Confessions of a Shopaholic and The Jane Austen Book Club) and Byrne (known from Sunshine and 28 Weeks Later) play their roles brilliantly!


I had such a sweet time watching this film, so my sincere advice to you is: Don't miss this little gem!
