Atom Egoyan carefully constructs this screenplay and resorts to familiar themes, many of which he has explored in the past. The subject matter of the film allows for an intriguing story. As Simon develops his assignment, we touch on familiar subjects of terrorism. His story goes on to spark an Internet audience and results in extreme controversy. Surprisingly, technology is a character of its own in this film, and is used as a tool which allows Simon to explore his family history.
Adoration is told in non-chronological order, much like the rest of Egoyan's films. The complexity of the film adds to the intensity, and using this technique allows Egoyan to effectively reveal a certain piece of information at a time, allowing the audience to piece together the overall story. As usual, we are left with a profound and powerful story in the conclusion of the film.
