KEEP THE CHANGE
Dir. Rachel Israel | Comedy | U.S.A. | 2017 | 94 min.
This romantic comedy, inspired by the lead actor's life, follows an upper-class charmer struggling to hide his high-functioning autism. Forced to attend a support group for people with disabilities, he falls in love with Sarah, a sheltered young autistic woman who challenges his desire to maintain a “normal” identity. This funny and sweet film stands out not only because of its honest and touching performances, but because the actors themselves have the disabilities portrayed.
