Filmmaker Rachel Israel’s Keep the Change Hits NY Theaters!
After receiving her Princess Grace Award in 2006, Rachel Israel produced her short thesis film, Keep the Change, which was recently made into a feature film with the help of a Princess Grace Special Projects grant.
The film, set in New York City, follows two adults on the autistim spectrum who fall in love. The lighthearted romantic comedy represents a type of film that pulls away from the usual stock characters. A review from The Hollywood Reporter agrees that moviegoers “don't see many characters with autism on screen, and even more rarely see them presented as unmanipulatively as they are here.”
Rachel was named Best New Narrative Director at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival for her film, and continues to receive praise for Keep the Change, which shows an honest view of dating for people with autism. Read the full review here.
