Debut Trailer for Acclaimed Sundance Rom-Com THE BIG SICK with Kumail Nanjiani & Zoe Kazan

THE BIG SICK is a romantic comedy film directed by Michael Showalter (The Baxter, Hello, My Name Is Doris), from a screenplay by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon. The film had its world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and received overwhelming positive reviews.

Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, THE BIG SICK tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Nanjiani), who connects with grad student Emily (Zoe Kazan) after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents. When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he’s never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.
