The Big Sick Rated 15

The Big Sick

Dir. Michael Showalter. USA, 2017. 2h. Starring Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, Ray Romano, Adeel Akhtar, Anupam Kher, Zenobia Shroff, Bo Burnham.

A Pakistani comedian begins dating an American student, but a clash of cultures and a sudden illness leads to mounting tensions between their two families. A heartfelt romantic comedy with lovable characters and plenty of laughs.

'The Big Sick finds plots by losing them. That's its genius. One moment we are in an ethnic satire; the next a romcom; the next a hospital comedy-drama. But that's existence.' ★★★★★ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

'The year’s most likably unlikely romcom' ★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Guardian
