SF IndieFest: COME AS YOU ARE
First show: January 30
IndieFest’s Opening Night Film!
Inspired by a true story – three young men with disabilities flee their overbearing parents for a road trip to a brothel that caters to people with special needs, in order to lose their virginity and embrace their independence. Gabourey Sidibe stars as their nurse driver. Janeane Garofalo and C.S. Lee also star as concerned parents hot on their trail.
Come As You Are is a dark comedy meant to put a human touch on everyone’s longing for connection. With signature snappy dialogue and straight-faced humor, Bay Area filmmaker Richard Wong adds another hit to a buzz-worthy resume that already includes the cult hit Colma, The Musical.
Directed by Richard Wong. USA. 106 min.
