The Big Sick

New movie screening coming soon to Matakana Cinemas, from August 3rd.

Director Michael Showalter and co-writer/co-star Kumail Nanjiani (TV’s Silicon Valley) reteam for this Judd Apatow-produced culture clash rom-com, a Sundance hit.

“Based on the true story of the film’s writers (and real-life couple), Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani, this modern culture clash shows how Pakistan-born Kumail (Nanjiani) and his American girlfriend, Emily (Kazan), have to overcome the expectations of his family and their 1,400-year-old traditions. As his parents relentlessly set him up with potential brides for an arranged marriage, Kumail navigates treacherous waters in the worlds of both dating and stand-up comedy.” (Sundance Film Festival)
