Film Viewing: "The Big Sick" An American film directed by Michael Showalter (2017). Actor and writer Kumail Nanjiani fell in love with his then girlfriend, now wife, Emily V. Gordon, when she was in a coma. You could call it a romantic comedy, but it clashes across cultures and generations (parents are played by Holly Hunter and Ray Romano and Anupam Kher and Zenobia Shroff) that are specific to Nanjiani's experience, but also resonate universally. It is an insightful exploration of how we live now with the Pakistan-born comic, starring as himself, enduring racism that's both casual and pointed.
