Home > Movies > Adam


Somewhere between the all the comings and goings of the summer, Alison and I found a couple hours of unoccupied time one evening.  We hadn’t seen a movie in a while, so we looked to see what was available and there was a movie called Adam that I knew nothing about.  By the way, having zero knowledge about a movie is my favorite way to see one.  I love the experiencing a story unfolding, and seeing previews or reading write-ups tends to predispose me one way or another towards the film.  This penchant of mine is aided by our next to non-existent exposure to the television, and therefore most story-ruining previews.  Sometimes this strategy backfires, but whatever.

So given my unintentional rant, I won’t ruin the movie by telling you all about it.  Other than it is a love story.  But it’s not your typical Hugh Grant-ish type of romantic comedy (not that there is anything wrong with that).  If you enjoyed Lars and the Real Girl, then you stand a chance of appreciating this one too.

Bonus…  great soundtrack.

    SOMETIMES backfires? try GENERALLY instead…for me at least. Of course, I hold that movie accountable for my satisfaction. You keep my attention for 2 hours (3 including previews) and you better help me get my entertainment on!

    Thanks for the recommendation T. Annie and I enjoyed it last night.

    Gerald, you have every right to expect that from a movie! This one isn’t as entertaining as it is thoughtful. Surprised?

    Kevin, glad you guys liked it. Like I was telling Gerald, it was one that has sort of kept me thinking. Really, aren’t we all a bit like Adam? Maybe that’s the point. I’m not sure “Adam” is a name chosen at random.
