Great Films I : Adam (2009)

Description :
"Adam, a lonely man with Asperger's Syndrome, develops a relationship with his upstairs neighbour, Beth."

Adam is love story about man with Asperger's syndrome, and his struggles to cope with that condition in every day life.
The film manages to bring awareness to Asperger's syndrome without ever forgetting the story, by balancing and connecting both aspects of the story really well, and managing to be funny at times.
Both Hugh Dancy (Adam) and Rose Byrne (Beth) deliver great performances, and I also liked Frankie Faison (Harlan) who played the supporting yet very important role of Adam's ever-present friend.

It's a picture really worth seeing, you will learn from it and still get a great story!
