My husband and I loved this film. We have a son with Asperger's, although higher-functioning than the character, Adam. We consider ourselves blessed and lucky to have our son in our lives. He is smart and soulful, incredibly kind and sensitive. Some of his quirky behaviors were well-represented by the on-screen performance of Hugh Dancy. We are anxious to see this movie come out on DVD

At its best, Adam makes the viewer understand the frustration of living in a world in which everyone is a stranger -- not least by making us work as hard to understand its hero's feelings as Adam himself must work to understand Beth's. Full Review

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

Adam is a cut above most romances and boasts a intriguing conclusion. One comes away with a sense of hope, leavened by realism. Full Review

The tendency for an actor in a role like this is to overact. The result is often disastrous, reducing a character into a caricature. Hugh Dancy, adopting an American accent as effectively as the mannerisms of someone on the moderate portion of the Asperger's spectrum, makes Adam believable and generally sympathetic. Full Review
