The Big Sick 15 rating

The hilarious, breakout indie comedy about a Pakistan-born comedian and his culture-clash relationship with an American grad student.

Comedy 2017 120 mins

Director: Michael Showalter



When Pakistan-born Kumail (Nanjiani, who stars as himself) meets and falls in love with American Emily (Zoe Kazan), he has to take on the expectations of his family, their 1400-year-old traditions and his desire to forge a career in stand-up comedy.

Based on the true story of the films’ writers (and real-life couple), Emily V Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani, this standout Sundance dramedy is a sensitive, funny and truthful take on modern romance.
