TRAILER: Hugh Dancy's "Adam"

Leave it to Hollywood to try to make Asperger's syndrome cute. Hugh Dancy (Confessions of a Shopaholic) plays a guy who has said syndrome and therefore is incapable of socializing normally. He says exactly what's on his mind at the most inappropriate moments—i.e. that's he's aroused—and takes most comments literally. The object of his character's obsession is played by Rose Byrne ("Damages"). His charming gestures amuse and amaze her, despite her friends' and parents' arguments against associating herself with him. It's an indie rom-com about loving against all odds and redefining what's socially acceptable. It's not exactly Oscar material, but it gets Dancy one step closer to mainstream male lead roles with substance.
