Stuff Graeme Tuckett 4 1/2 Stars "The Big Sick is by far the funniest film I've seen in 2017. But that beneath the fusillade of beautifully crafted jokes, this is also one of the tenderest, sweetest and most honestly heartbreaking films for years."
Director Michael Showalter and co-writer/co-star Kumail Nanjiani (TV's Silicon Valley) reteam for this Judd Apatow-produced culture clash rom-com, a Sundance hit.
"Based on the true story of the filmâ€™s writers (and real-life couple), Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani, this modern culture clash shows how Pakistan-born Kumail (Nanjiani) and his American girlfriend, Emily (Kazan), have to overcome the expectations of his family and their 1,400-year-old traditions. As his parents relentlessly set him up with potential brides for an arranged marriage, Kumail navigates treacherous waters in the worlds of both dating and stand-up comedy." (Sundance Film Festival)
