Three disabled men go off on a road trip to a brothel for their first sexual encounters in a film by director Richard Wong, Come as You Are. Deadline reports that Samuel Goldwyn has picked up the US rights for the film which played at the South By Southwest Festival.
The movie stars Ravi Patel from Meet The Patels fame, along with Grant Rosenmeyer and Hayden Szeto. Gabourey Sidibe plays an overbearing nurse who accompanies the men on their trip.
“Richard Wong perfectly balances the sweet, funny, and dramatic moments anchored by the outstanding performances from Grant, Hayden, Ravi, and Gabourey. We’re thrilled to bring such a hilarious movie to audiences that still has tremendous heart woven into each moment,” says Meg Longo of Samuel Goldwyn Films.
Wong has six directing credits to his name including his debut film, Colma the Musical and Yes, We’re Open.
