quietearth [Celluloid 02.01.09] movie news comedy drama romance



Starring Rose Byrne and Hugh Dancy, Adam is another on my list of weird indy romance flicks that are a must-see. It just premiered at Sundance and now there's footage, and btw, if you use the word "quirky", Jim Jarmusch will stab you.

This film is a love story about a man named ADAM (Hugh Dancy) who has Asperger’s Syndrome, a high functioning form of autism. ADAM finds it difficult to be with others and often escapes into his love of space exploration. When BETH (Rose Byrne) moves into the apartment above him, he uses his unique, often funny, and sometimes painful social skills to begin to build the personal relationship that he so desperately desires. Adam is a romantic character piece about the obstacles to intimacy and the compromises we all make for love.

Are these clips positively not working for anyone else? They keep stopping after a few seconds.

My son has Aspergers. This is a tearjerker to watch. He's only 14, but I often wonder what his life will be like as an adult. I know relationships will be tough, but I know someone will fall in love with the same endearing unique qualities that I love. Thank you for bringing this to light. More people need to know about this disorder that is on the rise.
