This film made me cry like i haven't done in a long time. In my opinion, Adam's medical condition only underlines his condition as a highly intelligent individual - this film shows his loneliness and inability to communicate with others the things that were meaninful for him. The fact that he ends up alone is both realistic and heartbreaking for someone who relates to his situation. Hugh Dancy's acting is great.
