“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,” explains Meg Longo of Samuel Goldwyn Films.

The script for the movie was written by Erik Linthorst and it was inspired by the life of Asta Philpot, who advocates for the active sexual life of people with disabilities. His views were a major contribution to the Belgian flick Hasta La Vista, which serves as the original source to the upcoming Come as You Are.
