My biggest concern about attending film festivals (and tonight is closing night of the Boston IFF) is always that the indie flicks will either be too experimental in nature (I hate experimental films) or too whimsiquirkilicious (a particular fear, now dispelled, that I had about 500 Days of Summer). I’m generally almost always pleasantly surprised that most of the offerings don’t either bore me to death or gag me with quirk.
That said, Adam — which stars Hugh Dancy and Rose Byrne — looks almost exactly like the kind of movie that might make me upchuck glitter and moldy peaches. It looks cute, but maybe just a little too twee. It’s about a girl who falls in love with a guy that has Aspergers. I dunno: It’s just a little too much, you know.
Give it a gander; perhaps you’ll agree.
