Starring Hugh Dancy and Rose Byrne. Also featuring Peter Gallagher, Frankie Faison, and Amy Irving.
Saw my second Sundance movie today. It was called Adam, it was great, and unbelievably, it was also about a man with Aspergers. It was a drama, with a good script, incredible acting, and an interesting story. Strangely, Mary & Max, the claymation movie, was more realistic in many ways. I'd give Adam 3 1/2 stars and M&M 4 1/2. All the actors listed above were in attendance, as well as the writer/director. There was a very good short that played first as well. Too far away for good photos of the talent and didn't see anyone really close up. Had a great time with my friend Janette, who only decided to go with me on Saturday. Both Katrina and Rochelle who were originally going with me didn't make it. Lunch afterwards at El Chubasco with it's salsa bar which had about a dozen different salsas to try and some delicious, authentic, reasonably priced Mexican food.
