This Week


This week, Jul 28, 29, 30, Aug 2 at 7:30pm, we show The Big Sick.

Rating: 14A for coarse language.

Comedy/Romance. Loosely based on the real-life romance between Kumail Nanjiani and Emil V. Gordon. Comedian Kumail (playing himself) connects with grad student Emily (Zoe Kazan) after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents. When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he's never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart. --rottentomatoes.com
