a story about two strangers. One a little stranger than the other


Hugh Dancy as Adam Raki

Rose Byrne as Beth Buchwald

This is a movie about 2 people falling in love.  It feels so ordinary and nothing’s special until you find that the boy suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome. Adam Raki (Dancy) is an adult who acted like a child. He was really down when his father suddenly died. He was fired from his job because his employer thought that he was not capable to be in their company due to his Asperger’s Syndrome.  His life was ruined.

Then, there was a girl named Beth Buchwald (Byrne) who became Adam’s new neighbor. She’s a kindergarten’s teacher. She helped Adam to go through his problems. Adam was falling in love with her but never had courage to tell his feeling to her until the last time he saw her. Finally Adam got a new job and he must move to California. He wanted Beth to accompany him but she wouldn’t want to. Although they finally broke up, but they still kept in touch.

This movie is worth watching and as usual I gave more attention to the soundtrack. Try to listen  Someone Else’s Life by Joshua Radin. I like that song so much. So, go grab the DVD and watch it, people!!
