Come As You Are

Come As You Are

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 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. A remake of the award winning, critically acclaimed 2011 Belgian film HASTA LA VISTA.
