It’s the summer before Adam (Nicholas Alexander) goes to college, and instead of moping around his house, he heads to New York City to live with his big sister Casey (Margaret Qualley). “Tell Mom you’re coming to New York to have a cultural experience,” Casey says. Cut to that cultural experience: Adam ingratiates himself in Casey’s LGBTQ-activist milieu, romancing red-haired Gillian (Bobbi Salvör Menuez), who thinks Adam — straight, white, cis — is a trans man, 20 years old, and a student at Berkeley. Adam, based on the 2014 novel by Ariel Schrag, is the feature-film directorial debut of Transparent producer Rhys Ernst. Adam co-stars Leo Sheng, Chloe Levine, and Mj Rodriguez.
