Adam Raki is a character in the American romantic drama-comedy Adam.
Actor Hugh Dancy initially did not know a lot about autism and had to do research for the role, including reading books by autistic people.
The movie premiered at the 2009 Sundance film festival, where it won the Alfred P. Sloan prize.
Adam lives alone in a Manhattan apartment after his dad died. The story focuses on the relationship between Adam and Beth, a school teacher who has just moved into his apartment building.
Adam himself states that he has Asperger's syndrome. He is very literal-minded and has a special interest in space.
