THE BIG SICK breathes new life into the romantic comedy with a rich bouquet of emotion - from belly laughs to broken hearts and back again. Director Michael Showalter adapts the real-life to reel-life story of co-writers Kumail Nanjiani and Emily Gordon, who inject the insight of personal experience into commitment across cultural boundaries and mortal horizons. Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan glow amidst their on-screen sparks, and Holly Hunter and Ray Romano are impeccable as parents stretched thin with worry, yet embracing the complexities of love in modern day.
