      Hugh Dancy's elegant performance as a man with Asperger's Syndrome elevates Adam, an offbeat but touching romantic comedy.

      Caroline Narby Bitch Media A non-autistic viewer ostensibly is meant... to come away from the film with a vague sense of "betterment."As an autistic viewer... I am left only with a renewed understanding that I am constructed, by a discursive web of popular media and pop-psychology. Jan 11, 2021 Full Review Hank Sartin Time Out Rated: 1/5 Nov 18, 2011 Full Review Perri Nemiroff CinemaBlend Mayer combines a mild dose of humor with the distress of an unfortunate condition to create something extremely endearing. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 14, 2010 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review One of the best performances of 2009 is unfortunately contained within a movie that doesn’t live up to the acting. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 25, 2023 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com It's easy to understand why Fox Searchlight was interested in this light, quirky little love story with a good heart and gentle spirit. Rated: 3.5/4.0 Sep 1, 2020 Full Review David Lamble Bay Area Reporter Hugh Dancy and Rose Byme share a quirky chemistry reminiscent of the early sketch-humor of Mike Nichols and Elaine May.

      Kyle M Sensibly directed and well-performed to the point of transcending the thematically depicted limitations, but insignificant as the revisited discourse doesn't offer a fresh insight through a coerced pairing's chemistry, which therefore minimizes the engagement due to the downplayed potential despite the charismatic participations. (B-) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/05/23 Full Review Audience Member A beautiful movie with amazing actors. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review nilufer e An amazing movie filled with compassion and understanding. The cast was amazing. It was complicated, a bit tough but romantic in the core. Can watch again. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member sweet movie about a man with Asperger's syndrome who falls in love Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Opened my eyes to see a new world ( which might be living right next door to us) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/26/18 Full Review Audience Member Second viewing. Maybe not as good as first, but still reliable for some laughs, music and emotion. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
