Film No. 58 (2017) The Big Sick. August 8th.

Film No. 58 (2017) August 8th.  3.45 PM  LUNA Paradiso, Northbridge.

"I'm not that kind of girl, I only have sex once on a first date." (Emily makes her feelings felt after a pleasant evening in the company of Kumail).

Yet another social drama with a Judd Apatow (Producer) feel  and that's a good thing.  The story is a retell of how standup Kumail Nanjiani (playing himself) met his wife Emily (Zoe Kazan) in a terrorist tense U.S. The real warmth of the story comes when a sliding doors incident (Emily's illness) brings Emily's parents, Terry (Ray Romano) and Beth (Holly Hunter) to town (Chicago) to care for their daughter. Nanjiani also cares but there is a subtle competition of care until a warmth of respect for one another prevails. And of course as the reality of life would suggest everyone is living happily ever after. 9GUMS.
