Amy Irving: She's back!

The ”Hide and Seek” actress’s latest project is ”Adam” with Hugh Dancy

Posted on

Last Big Film: Hide and Seek (2005)
New Movie: Adam, a romantic dramedy about a man with Asperger’s (Hugh Dancy) who develops a relationship with his neighbor (Rose Byrne).
Why Now? Irving, 55, was recruited to play Byrne’s mother by director Max Mayer and producer Leslie Urdang, who helped jump-start Irving’s 2006 stage production of A Safe Harbor for Elizabeth Bishop. Accepting the role in Adam was an easy decision. ”I went on blind faith,” she says. ”At my age, the opportunities aren’t right in front of me all the time, so it’s nice when something comes along.”
Release Date: July 29
