"Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love. Girl doesn't."

Romance can be risky, perplexing and filled with the perils of miscommunication - and that's if you aren't ADAM, for whom life itself is this way.

In this heartfelt romantic comedy, Hugh Dancy stars as Adam, a handsome but intriguing young man who has all his life led a sheltered existence - until he meets his new neighbour, Beth (Rose Byrne), a beautiful, cosmopolitan young woman who pulls him into the outside world, with funny, touching and entirely unexpected results. Their implausible and enigmatic relationship reveals just how far two people from different realities can stretch in search of an extraordinary connection.

ADAM is directed and written by acclaimed theatre director Max Mayer and stars Hugh Dancy (THE JANE AUSTEN BOOK CLUB, CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC), Rose Byrne (DAMAGES TV series, 28 WEEKS LATER, KNOWING), Frankie Faison, Mark Linn-Baker with Amy Irving and Peter Gallagher.
