Adam

This was a charming little movie about a man on the spectrum trying to navigate through life and how is disease  affects those around him.  Was it a good portrayal of people with this disease?  I have no idea so I am forced to review it from an entertainment perspective (which feels odd).  I had empathy for both of the main characters and I think that is the takeaway.  In his review of the movie Ebert said that he disliked the ending.  I disagree – I thought it was probably the best part of the film.  The two leads were excellent.
