Dating is tough.
Dating in this generation is even worse. Trying to date someone from another race can be the most difficult thing. That’s what Kumail Nanjiani is trying to show in his new romantic comedy ‘The Big Sick’.
The trailer starts off how any relationship would start today (at least in a film), The girl Emily (Zoe Kazan) wants to leave after a one night stand. That’s when it turns out that her uber driver is Kumail (Nanjiani), the guy she just finished her night with.Kumail then deals with his parents, who of course want him to have a traditional Pakistan arranged relationship. The two break up and Emily ends up in the hospital.Kumail calls the parents (Ray Romano and Holly Hunter) who then needs to learn how to get along with someone from a different race.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year and has been getting some great reviews, currently sitting at 97% on Rotten Tomatoes.
‘The Big Sick’ releases June 23, 2017.
