- The Big Sick (15): 9.3.18



Based on a real life courtship, Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail, connects with grad student, Emily, after one of his stand-up sets.  However, what they thought would be just a one-night-stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected for Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents.  When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, Kumail finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family’s expectations and his true feelings.  From the outset, this sparky culture-clashing romcom has a modern edge.  (F-rated) (120 mins)
