Sean Kelly

Indie Thoughts: Adam

Adam is a film about a man with Asperger's syndrome that develops a relationship with his neighbour.

This film features a personal subject for me, since I was diagnosed with Asperger's last year. As a result, while I was watching the film I kept comparing the character of Adam to my own experieces and found the film to be a fairly accurate portrayal, even if the character seemed to be a little less high functioning than I am.

However, the film doesn't dwell on the disorder and the bulk of the film deals with Adam coping with his relationship, as well as learning to be a more independent individual.

I found it a sweet film and it's definitely worth a watch.
