Critic Reviews for Adam

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

  • Brisk and astutely assembled, "Adam" makes something educational and playful rather than insulting out of that character's brief walk in another gender construct's shoes.

  • [A} sweetly subversive movie, which represents a step forward in representation simply via the fact that it's directed by a trans filmmaker and features trans actors in the appropriate roles.

  • Director Rhys Ernst took a bold step in adapting this difficult material for the big screen, and what he delivered was a surprisingly hilarious, complicated look at a pivotal moment in queer culture.

  • While Adam seems almost like a rite of passage before we get more complex trans dramas in mainstream filmmaking, one can't help but feel frustrated by its missed opportunities.

  • Ultimately, Adam is one of those films that works well, both as a learning lesson and a conversation starter for transgender issues.

  • Along with screenwriter and novel author Ariel Schrag, Ernst manages to create a balance between the raunchy and charming at the same time. It's a feel good film, but in the most unexpected way.
