Adam (2009)

This is a delightful film that deals with the interaction between a young man with Asperger's syndrome and a neurotypical (NT) woman. It is sensitively done and has some teachable moments.

Just out on DVD. From NetFlix: When beautiful teacher Beth (Rose Byrne) moves into a nearby apartment, strangely awkward Adam (Hugh Dancy), who suffers from Asperger's syndrome, breaks through his limited social abilities and flirts with the young woman in this moving romance. Beth responds to Adam's unusual courtship, and as they overcome the obstacles to intimacy, they learn how to face life's other challenges. Max Mayer directs, while Peter Gallagher and Amy Irving co-star. 2009 99 minutes
