Her Friend Adam (2016) tells a story of a boyfriend’s insecurities that spark an argument which spirals into a full-on emotional meltdown. Her Friend Adam (2016) is a powerful single-take drama featuring a Sundance Special Jury Award–winning performance by Grace Glowicki. Anyone who has ever felt fraught with jealousy over their partner’s relationship with another will relate to Ben Petrie’s powerful new short, Her Friend Adam. A film that balances between comedy and drama, as our main character Robert (played by Ben himself) spirals out of control suffering cringeworthy sexual insecurity. The film features thunderous performances from Ben and his on-screen, and real life girlfriend, Grace Glowicki who took away the Jury Award for Outstanding Performance at Sundance back in January. I picked Ben’s brain to find out how he manifested on screen that feeling of despair spawned from the jealous fear that our loved one may have eyes for another.
