Come As You Are in October

Eureka Entertainment has announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of COME AS YOU ARE for October 7th, 2013. From the press release…

Come as You Are is a film by Flemish director Geoffrey Enthoven, written by Pierre De Clercq, and inspired by the real life experiences of Asta Philpot. It premiered at the 2011 Ostend Film Festival, and has since travelled the festival circuit picking up numerous accolades including the Audience Award at the 2012 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, and the Grand Prix des Amériques for Best Film at the 2011 Montréal World Film Festival.

Three good friends: the friendly and almost blind Jozef (Tom Audenaert), socially immature paraplegic Philip (Robrecht Vanden Thoren), and partially paralyzed and terminally ill Lars (Gilles De Schryver), announce to their parents, who they rely on for assistance in their daily lives, that they plan on taking a road trip through the wine route, alone. Of course that's just a cover for their true destination, a Spanish brothel that specializes in 'people like us'.

When their parents inevitably object, the three boys make plans in secret, and find a chaperone from Brussels named Claude (Isabelle de Hertogh), a physically intimidating and grouchy French speaking ex-con woman who they initially don't get along with but eventually warm up to.
