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.
This touching and hilarious indie film was Winner of Best U.S. Narrative Feature and Best New Narrative Director prizes at the Tribeca Film Festival, a NYT Critics Pick in 2018, and boasts a 100% certified fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
