Real-life couple Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon’s relationship is the basis of this Judd Apatow produced rom-com.
The pair didn’t just co-write the script, they put their own painful-funny true romance up there on the screen for all to see. When Pakistani Kumail (playing himself) begins dating white girl Emily (played by Zoe Kazan), there’s a catch. His culture embraces arranged marriages and he’s worried his parents will disown him. And when Emily becomes seriously ill, their two worlds will collide…
One of the most honest and wholesome comedies to come along in a while, The Big Sick is a must-see.
