David, the son of a wealthy Jewish family, whose parents (Jessica Walter and Tibor Feldman) are worried about his future, refuses to see himself as normal in every respect. He considers himself a natural charmer, hitting on every available girl he can find, and at the slightest excuse will deliver an unending string of dirty (mostly Jewish) jokes, often to the wrong ears. Forced to join a support group after offending a cop with his odd sense of humor, David considers himself to be superior to the group members until he is gradually swept over by the ebullient, over-excited Sarah. Keep the Change positions itself to join the pantheon of New York rom-coms. “We’ve seen the Brooklyn Bridge up there on the big screen plenty of times, but rarely have we seen it crossed by characters quite like these.” Awards: Indiewire Best American Narrative Film & Best New Narrative Director Tribeca Film Festival; Special Jury Mention & International Critics Award Karlovy Vary.
