Movie Reviews

  • 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
    Review rate : C+ by Jordan Raup [The Film Stage ]
  • overall, the film celebrates complexity and fuzzy edges and the importance of being honest with oneself; This is a gem of a film, mixing acknowledged awfulness with gentle culture clash comedy and a surprising amount of warmth
    4.5 of 5 by Jennie Kermode [Eye for Film (UK) ]
  • 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
    by Emily Wheeler [Film Inquiry ]
  • an ingratitaing comedy of cutting-edge sexual politics; 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
    by Dennis Harvey [Variety ]
  • an earnest and authentic take on the coming-of-age-film; "Adam" is a small movie, but it still feels like a big step forward for trans representation in film, which has lagged behind gay and lesbian progress made on screen in the last few decades
    Review rate : B by Kimber Myers [The Playlist ]
  • 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
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
