I related so much to this. Grateful the movie was made. Hugh Dancy was exceptional.
What a sweet movie! I’d imagined it would have been lighter but it was amazing nevertheless. A different kind of love story
Having just been diagnosed with aspergers at the time I found parts of this very relatable. But not every person with autism is like Adam
This movie takes an accurate portrayal of Asperger’s syndrome and mixes in a rom com narrative and gives you a fantastic indie film
Not sure if this holds up but I remember finding it charming enough.
I honestly don't remember much about it. Which says a lot too.
Hugh is so underrated
Sweet and realistic
