Special Advance Screening!

(2017) dir Michael Showalter w/Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan [119 min; DCP]
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, who hooks-up with grad student Emily after one of his standup sets. What they thought would be just a one-night stand, however, blossoms into the real thing, which complicates both of their lives.
