The Big Sick 15

Director: Michael Showalter
Cast: Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan

Country: US
Year: 2017
Duration: 119m

US comedian and actor Kumail Nanjiani and writer Emily V. Gordon mine the history of their real-life courtship in this co-written, crowd-pleasing romantic comedy, depicting the how Pakistan-born Kumail and his American girlfriend (played by Zoe Kazan) have to overcome the expectations of his family and their 1,400-year-old traditions.

“A joyful, emotive and ruefully hilarious story, The Big Sick is eloquent on racial anxieties but also on how such cultural concerns are no match for the universal ties and fears of love, health and family.” ICO
