A Story of Two Strangers, One a Little Stranger Than The Other

Last night I watched the movie Adam starring Hugh Dancy and Rose Byrne. Adam tells the story of a man with Asperger's falling in love and dealing with up and downs of his life. As soon as I saw the preview for the movie a few months ago I fell in love with the idea of the movie and after watching it I was not disappointed.

Only having known one person with Asperger's the movie was enlightening and Hugh's portrayal of the struggle with everyday things is enlightening. After watching the movie I read many reviews by people with Asperger's saying how lovely it is to see a true depiction of what they deal with everyday.

Not only does the movie shed light on Asperger's but it is a heartwarming and charming love story, but like the ever lovely 500 Days of Summer, it is your conventional romantic story. The movie also has a great soundtrack, so much so that I downloaded it off Amazon right after watching. I would highly recommend the movie if you loved 500 Days or if you just love a indie romance.
