Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, The Big Sick follows an interracial couple Kumail (as himself) and Emily (Zoe Kazan) dealing with their cultural differences. When Emily suddenly comes down with an illness that leaves her in a coma, Kumail finds himself developing a bond with her deeply concerned mother and father (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano)
A funny, heartfelt and pleasant cross-cultural film. The Big Sick is a rom-com audiences will find appealing.
