  • It's the speed of love, not the speed of light, that occupies Adam, a small, sweet movie about one man's widening cosmos. show more

  • Adam succeeds at getting inside its hero's mind and, more impressively still, gives us entrée to his singular soul. show more

  • It can be argued that Adam uses Asperger's as a kind of metaphor for the barriers that people erect to fend off strangers, to guard against intimacy. It can also be argued that writer/director Mayer is shamelessly manipulative. show more
