From Judd Apatow, producer of Bridesmaids and Train Wreck, and director Michael Showalter (The State, Stella and cult movie-turned Netflix-series Wet Hot American Summer) comes the hit of this year's Sundance Film Festival.
Pakistan-born comedian Kumail and grad student Emily fall in love but 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.
THE BIG SICK was written by both comedian Kumail Nanjiani and his wife Emily Gordon, telling the story of their real-life romance to particularly touching effect.
Nanjiani stars as himself, alongside Zoe Kazan (as Emily), Holly Hunter, Ray Romano, Anupam Kher, Adeel Akhtar, Zenobia Shroff, Kurt Braunohler, Bo Burnham, and Aidy Bryant.
Funny, heartfelt and intelligent, THE BIG SICK, with its charming leads and modern-day cross-cultural themes, breathes new life into the rom-com genre.
"Edgy and hilarious, Nanjiani and Gordon's true story of cross-cultural love is a Trump-baiting marvel that's worth the hype." EMPIRE
