Rented from our library a few days ago. It's an independent film about a woman (Rose Byrne) who meets a man in her apartment (Hugh Dancy) with Asperger's Syndrome. Of note is his fascination with astronomy and cosmology.

Of even better note is that everything he said about astronomy (at least that I caught) was pretty accurate. The only scenes on astronomy that had a touch of Hollywood in it were some planetarium scenes depicting objects (shooting stars?) whizzing by at high speed.

A scene I enjoyed was when he trapped a hapless party guest who asked him the inevitable question "what scope should I buy?"

Pretty good independent film, and a nice depiction of our hobby and passion.
