AJFF Film: Keep the Change – Sun. Nov. 18th, 7PM, Park Lane

When aspiring filmmaker David is mandated by a judge to attend a social program at the Jewish Community Center, he is sure of one thing: he doesn’t belong there. But when he’s assigned to visit the Brooklyn Bridge with the vivacious Sarah, sparks fly and his convictions are tested. Their budding relationship must weather Sarah’s romantic past, David’s judgmental mother, and their own pre-conceptions of what love is supposed to look like. Under the guise of an off-kilter New York romantic comedy, Keep the Change does something quite radical in casting actors with autism to play characters with autism, offering a refreshingly honest portrait of a community seldom depicted on the big screen. Rarely has a romcom felt so deep and poignant. Thoroughly charming and quite funny, the film’s warmth and candor brings growth and transformation to the characters, and ultimately, to us. Winner of the Best U.S. and New Narrative Feature—Tribeca Film Festival Guest Speaker: Cynthia Carroll, Executive Director, Autism Nova Scotia Sensory friendly screening presented in partnership with Autism Nova Scotia
