STORYLINE:

The Big Sick (2017) is a heartfelt romantic comedy that tells the real-life story of comedian Kumail Nanjiani and his wife, Emily V. Gordon.

When Emily suddenly falls ill and is placed in a medically induced coma, Kumail forms an unlikely bond with her worried parents while facing his own family's pressures. The film navigates the complexities of relationships, cultural identity, and the healing power of love and laughter.


STAFF REVIEW:

The Big Sick (2017) is a charming and deeply moving film that beautifully blends humor and emotion. Directed by Michael Showalter and written by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, the film offers a fresh and authentic perspective on cross-cultural romance and the challenges that come with it. Nanjiani's performance is both humorous and sincere, while Zoe Kazan brings warmth and depth to the role of Emily. The supporting cast, including Holly Hunter and Ray Romano as Emily's parents, adds layers of complexity and heart to the story. With its witty script, strong performances, and genuine emotional resonance, The Big Sick is a standout in the romantic comedy genre.
