Here is plot description for “Adam”:
Romance can be risky,
A little awkward around the edges, Sloan's first feature nevertheless has engaging qualities -- most notably an energetic, charismatic cast and a generous selection of Partridge Family songs. Strand Releasing should expect moderately pleasing returns in specialized markets.
Focusing on a bunch of twentysomething ex-college roommates who reunite at a wedding, the film's back story is established through a series of holiday-themed vignettes in which Bob (Alexis Arquette) not-so-secretly pines for bunkmate Brendan (Christian Maelen).
While sexual tension leads to the inevitable bout of wrestling, Bob's crush remains unrequited. A drunken attempt to force the issue results in a permanent rift in their relationship.
Five years later, getting together for the marriage of fellow former boarders Carol (Lauren Velez) and Matt (Jamie Harrold), we find Bob working as a soap writer in New York and living with the show's self-obsessed star, Sterling (Tuc Watkins). Sarah (Marianne Hagan), who had a brief fling with Brendan, is now a law student working for a senator, while Bob's old confidante, Beth (Maddie Corman), and professional "himbo" Eric (Guillermo Diaz) are both still partying as if it's 1989.
Of course, the late-arriving (literally and figuratively) Brendan, now a Boston schoolteacher, manages to turn the gathering upside down with a not-so-surprising revelation.
Though the farcical elements are played out with entirely predictable results, there's a breezy, Oscar Wilde-meets-Neil Simon quality to Sloan's writing and direction that could take interesting shape as his talent matures.
He coaxes some nice, lightly amusing performances from his fresh-faced cast. While Arquette has a weakness for the "mug" shot, he has good comedic instincts. As much-sought-after Brendan, newcomer Maelen has a sweetly vulnerable presence.
Production values are fine, with kudos to editor Francois Keraudren for knowing how to cut sequences to the aforementioned Partridge Family tunes.
