"Packed full of witty dialog, and pulling firmly on your heartstrings, The Big Sick is a beautiful, incredibly real and engrossing film"
Written by Michael Showalter, The Big Sick is the semi autobiographical tale of the relationship shared by Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani set against the back drop of Pakistani culture.
The film is an absolute delight from start to finish; Nanjiani is witty and irrevocably funny bringing a sarcastic truth to proceedings, however, as good as his performance is, he is upstaged by Sundance darling Zoe Kazan who brings a warmth to the character of Emily and has an incredibly believable chemistry with Nanjiani.
Kazan’s Emily deals with the cultural differences of the relationship that she finds herself in, in a heartfelt and respectful way, I don’t know a lot about the Pakistani culture but what is presented on screen is thought provoking and interesting to behold.
Packed full of witty dialog, and pulling firmly on your heartstrings, The Big Sick is a beautiful, incredibly real and engrossing film that will have you shouting at the screen and rooting for our protagonists leading to a well earned conclusion.
