My roommate S brought this movie home the other day and I found it incredibly adorable. It is a quirky love story about a Man with Aspergers Syndrome who falls in love with a woman who has just moved into his building. Aspergers Syndrome is on the Autism spectrum, after spending 4 years working with children and adolescents with varying degrees of Autism, I know how hard it is for these individuals to connect with other people. The movie was so sweet in the ways that Adam shows Elizabeth, his love interest, how he cares about her. I found it touching as i can't seem to find a "typical" man who is willing to show affection in the ways Adam does for Elizabeth. I highly recommend this one, snuggled up with a cup of tea on a Sunday afternoon.
