Dancy's sensitive, never-showy portrayal of the autistic Adam reminds us that there's a real person behind every behavioral disorder, psychological condition and personality quirk that often comes off as "strange."
Adam and Beth are remarkably nice, likable characters, played by Dancy and Byrne without the tics and self-consciousness that more pretentious or perhaps less secure performers might have brought to the roles.
There's really nothing extraordinary to praise about this affecting but not particularly memorable little movie other than to point out that audiences hungering for cinematic fare outside the usual summer popcorn blockbusters will find much to like in it.
