The Big Sick

Comedian Kumail Nanjiani ("Silicon Valley") and his wife wrote this unusual romantic comedy based on their own fractured path to a relationship. Nanjiani stars as a Pakistani-American dodging his old school parents' attempts to land him an arranged marriage. He meets and falls in love with the perfect (Caucasian) gal (Zoe Kazan), but she unexpectedly falls into a medical coma. Oddly enough, this causes him to meet and bond with her parents (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano). It sounds like serious stuff--and in parts it's brimming with well-earned emotions--but it's also really funny. This is about as well-written and well-acted as rom-coms get. 119 minutes R.
