This 2018 romcom is a Manhattan love story set in a small community of autistic New Yorkers. Two of the film’s lead actor play, and are themselves members of, that community. In the film, when David, an aspiring filmmaker, 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. The New York Times made “Keep the Change” a ‘Critics’ Pick’, and called it “awfully tenderhearted and thoroughly disarming.” Other critics said, “Under the guise of an off-kilter New York romantic comedy, “Keep the Change” offers 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…”
One of the film’s stars, the veteran actor, former OZ Congregant and longtime Purimspiel stalwart Tibor Feldman (the awesome, fearsome — cue the grogger — Haman ) will join us following the screening for a lively stimulating talkback.
Enjoy a movie and popcorn with fellow Congregants.
