Question about the movie "Adam"

I recently saw this movie and I'd like to know how far to believe its portrayal of the Aspie title character. His traits fit with what little I know about AS; on the other hand, I don't trust Hollywood to let the facts get in the way of a good story, and it wouldn't surprise me if some things were either hyped or downplayed in the interest of the basic rom-com narrative.

So, what's the community's view of this film?

1. I was hoping someone would respond to this.

I have not seen the movie. I have a son with Asperger's. The first time I was in a theater and saw the trailer for this movie I started crying, because it was too close to home.
