THE BIG SICK (in English)
"This romantic comedy, based on the central star Kumail Nanjiani’s own experience of a cross-cultural relationship, is as moving as it is funny. Tracing cultural challenges in the already complex world of modern dating, The Big Sick offers a healthy antidote to prejudice."(Keeva Stratton, RESCU)
"In a way, there is a “Romeo and Juliet” element. Kumail has moved to America from Pakistan as a kid and has totally assimilated into the culture, but mollifies his Muslim parents who expect him to marry a woman of the faith. He keeps that from Emily, and when that comes to light, it causes a rift between them.
When Emily falls into an unexplained coma, Kumail realizes he’s made a mistake, but he finds himself facing Emily’s parents who don’t care that he from a Muslim family but that he was a jerk to their daughter. Holly Hunter and Ray Romano are brilliant as the parents." (Rob Lowman, LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS)
