Kumail Nanjiani (HBO’s Silicon Valley) has been receiving rave reviews for The Big Sick, the upcoming comedy based on his real-life romance with his wife Emily V. Gordon. Nanjiani co-wrote the film with Gordon, and stars as an aspiring comedian from Pakistan who meets Emily (Zoe Kazan) after one of his stand-up sets. Their budding relationship is then tested by his religious family and Emily’s sudden, mysterious illness. The Big Sick also stars Holly Hunter and Ray Romano as Emily’s parents, along with appearances from comedy faves Bo Burnham and Kurt Braunohler, and is directed by Michael Showalter (Wet Hot American Summer).
The Big Sick opens in Montreal on July 7th, but we have a pair of tickets for the sold-out English premiere at Cinémathèque Québécoise on July 5th at 9:00 pm courtesy of Entract Films and Just for Laughs!
