The Big Sick is an engaging and thoughtful comedy, based on the true story of its co-writers. Pakistani-American Kumail is an Uber driver and stand-up comedian who falls for Emily, a white graduate student. Kumail struggles to reconcile his family’s traditional Muslim values with the world he now inhabits and doesn’t tell them about Emily. With their relationship in crisis, Emily contracts a mysterious, life-threatening illness. Kumail tries to understand his feelings and deal with his family’s expectations as he shares an awkward bedside vigil with Emily’s parents. An intelligent comedy that exposes some of the everyday racism Muslims experience in America.
