Come As You Are

USA– 2019- 106′

Three young men with disabilities hit the road with a jaded driver, to visit a Montreal brothel that caters to special needs clients.

Inspired by a true story, three young men with disabilities (Grant Rosenmeyer, Hayden Szeto, Ravi Patel) flee their overbearing parents for a road trip to a brothel in Montreal that caters to people with special needs, in order to lose their virginity and – finally! – embrace their independence.

A wonderfully wry Gabourey Sidibe also stars as their jaded, somewhat cranky nurse driver, while the divine Janeane Garofalo and C.S. Lee provide added comic relief as the concerned parents hot on their trail.

With its absolutely hilarious and heartfelt script, this remake of the critically acclaimed 2011 Belgian film HASTA LA VISTA is not only one of the funniest – and raunchiest – films of the year, it’s ultimately one of the most poignant and emotional ones as well.
