Film Fest: Keep the Change @ The NEON

19 April 2018 @ 7:15 pm - 9:30 pm

$9

2017  |  Running Time: 94 minutes  |  English

Two adults with autism strike up an unlikely and transformative relationship, in Keep the Change, a heartfelt, humorous and wonderfully surprising reinvention of the New York romantic comedy. David (Brandon Polansky), a high-functioning, upper-class charmer must attend a support group for people on the spectrum, where he falls for vivacious Sarah (Samantha Elisofon). Despite contrasting personalities, they start an endearing romance, exploring Manhattan, breaking down barriers, and dealing with their disabilities, as Sarah’s happy-go-lucky spirit overrides David’s negativity. Showcasing naturally spontaneous performances by actors with autism, writer-director Rachel Israel’s inclusive and fresh debut is a unique and universal love story full of vibrant characters under-represented in cinema.

$9 adult. $8 student tickets available at the door only.

Guest Speaker – Stacey Soifer
Stacey has practiced law for 30 years in a variety of areas including representing parents of children with disabilities. Stacey is the mother of a 27year old autistic son. She has been involved in advocating for his education, for his medical treatment, and now in his adult life and the working community.

Winner: Best US Narrative Feature, Best New Narrative Director, Nora Ephron Prize (Tribeca FF)
Jury Award for Best US Narrative Feature and Best New Narrative Director at Tribeca Film Festival
