When aspiring filmmaker David (Brandon Polansky) 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 (Samantha Elisofon), sparks fly and his convictions are tested. Their budding relationship must weather Sarah’s romantic past, David’s judgmental mother (Jessica Walter), 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 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.

"It’s an ode to self-discovery and acceptance that’s as funny as it is sweet."
Nick Schager - VARIETY

"KEEP THE CHANGE, despite David’s knack for making offensive jokes, is a charming, sensitive picture that embraces the characters as they are, without mocking them."
Kristen Yoonsoo Kim - VILLAGE VOICE

"KEEP THE CHANGE is not a seamlessly crafted movie, but it’s awfully tenderhearted and thoroughly disarming. It deserves to be widely seen."
Glenn Kenny - THE NEW YORK TIMES
