“The Big Sick” stars Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter and Ray Romano in this beautifully written story of a Pakistani would be stand up comic and a North Carolina graduate student who find themselves in a relationship that defies the conflicting cultures from which each is a part.
Directed by Michael Showalter, the film moves at an easy and pleasant pace as the lead characters find themselves in both comic and deep dramatic circumstances with the audience a more than willing participant throughout.
I give this film 3 and ½ stars and suggest that the only thing “sick” about it would be to not see it.
