From Judd Apatow (producer of Superbad and Bridesmaids) The Big Sick is a smart and engaging New York comedy and a Sundance hit.
Pakistan-born comedian Kumail and grad student Emily begin dating, but they struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, Kumail must navigate the crisis with her parents and the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.
“Edgy and hilarious, Nanjiani and Gordon’s true story of cross-cultural love is a Trump-baiting marvel that’s worth the hype.” – Empire Magazine
