Movie Info

Awkward, self-conscious Adam Freeman (Nicholas Alexander) has just finished his junior year of high school in 2006. When his cool older sister Casey (Margaret Qualley) suggests he visit her in New York for the Summer, Adam has visions of meeting a girl and finally gaining some actual life experience. The fantasy doesn't materialize exactly as expected. Casey has enthusiastically embraced life amidst Brooklyn's young LGBTQ community and invites Adam to tag along with her to queer bars, marriage equality rallies and other happenings. When Adam falls at first sight for Gillian (Bobbi Salvör Menuez), a smart, beautiful young woman in this new crowd, she mistakenly assumes he is trans. Flummoxed and enamored, he haplessly goes along with her assumption, resulting in an increasingly complex comedy -- and tragedy -- of errors he's ill-equipped to navigate.

  • Arriving following the backlash transgender drama Girl received upon general release earlier in the year, Adam is a great argument for letting trans people tell their stories.

  • There could've been room for this comedy to be more than its distasteful premise, but because of how blandly conventional and transparent the characters are, Adam is just meh.

    August 31, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • I didn't really care for the film.

    August 26, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The film offers a bold perspective on how it feels to be outside mainstream society, seeking a community of like-minded people.

    August 26, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Adam is too tonally uneven for me to really admire it-it has the broad concept of a major studio movie in which you're supposed to buy every character's stupidity, but then it's framed and scripted like an intimate, mumbling indie.

    August 23, 2019 | Full Review…
  • In the end, Adam is the kind of movie that, despite some good moments and reasonably noble intentions, ultimately does not quite work, though it could potentially inspire some viewer to one day make another movie along these lines that genuinely does.
