‘The Big Sick’ follows the burgeoning relationship between Kumail and Emily. They quickly grow close, but Kumail doesn’t want his new American girlfriend to meet his very strict Muslim parents.
Emily’s understandably unhappy about this, and things take another turn for the worse when she comes down with a mysterious illness. Now, Kumail has to take charge of the crisis – along with Emily’s parents.
Inspired by the life story of its writers, ‘The Big Sick’ is an alternately charming and riveting romantic comedy that received near-universal acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival.
