After a successful premiere last year at the Tribeca Film Festival, Kino Lorber released the official trailer for its upcoming film, “Keep the Change.”
The film stars newcomers Brandon Polansky and Samantha Elisofon as David and Sarah. They meet in a social program at the Jewish Community Center when David is ordered by a judge to attend. After a trip to the Brooklyn Bridge, the two find themselves in a surprising relationship that faces scrutiny and skepticism from everyone around them. Most especially David’s mother (Jessica Walter, “Arrested Development”).
Polansky and Elisofon starred in the same roles in a short version of the film in 2013.
“Keep the Change” also stars Tibor Feldman (“Enchanted”), and non-professional actors with Autism, Nicky Gottlieb and Will Deaver.
The film was written and directed by Rachel Israel, and is her feature film debut. “Keep the Change” was adapted from her short film. She has worked in production on “Ugly Betty” and “Violet & Daisy.”
The film won awards for US Narrative Feature and Best New Narrative Director at Tribeca last year. It also received a special mention for the Nora Ephron Prize.
“Keep the Change” will be released in NY on March 16, LA on March 23, and nationwide after that.
