Don't miss the hilarious romantic comedy film of the summer, THE BIG SICK starring Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani.
When Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Nanjiani) connects with grad student Emily (Zoe Kazan) after one of his standup sets, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing. But this further complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents.
Then Emily is beset with a mystery illness forcing Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he's never met while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.
