USA, 2017/Romantic comedy, 90 minutes/English/Written and directed by Rachel Israel (unrated)

After an unfortunate incident with a police officer, 30-year-old David is mandated by a judge to attend a program for adults with special needs at the Manhattan JCC. Despite the manifestations of his own autism, David labels the other participants “weirdos,” and determines to remain aloof – until he meets his match in Sarah, a vivacious dynamo equally determined to bring him out of his shell.  Described by Tribeca Film Festival jurors as a “heartwarming, hilarious and consistently surprising reinvention of the New York romantic comedy,” Keep the Change is one of a kind, and unforgettably so.

Winner: Best US Narrative Feature, Nora Ephron Prize (Special Jury Mention), Best New Narrative Director (Rachel Israel). 2017 Tribeca Film Festival; Nominee: Best Actress (Samantha Elisofon), 2017 Tribeca Film Festival; Best Debut Feature and the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) Award, 2017 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival
