Fri 11 – Thu 17 Aug


Synopsis

★★★★ - EMPIRE | ★★★★ - Mark Kermode's Film of the Week

When aspiring Pakistan-born comedian Kumail (Nanjiana, Silicon Valley) meets grad-student Emily (Zoe Kazan), what was supposed to be a one night stand blossoms into something more.

Stuck between his feelings for Emily and his traditional Muslim parents’ desire for him to marry a Pakistani woman, things are further complicated when Emily falls ill and Kumail is forced to deal with Emily’s parents (the superb Holly Hunter and Ray Romano).

Based on the real-life relationship of Nanjiani and co-writer Emily V. Gordon, The Big Sick is a smart, heartfelt and very funny film.

Dir: Michael Showalter

Cast: Kumail Nanjiani, Holly Hunter, Zoe Kazan, Ray Romano
