Milos Stehlik Reviews ‘The Big Sick’

WBEZ film contributor Milos Stehlik, director at Facets, joins us to review the film The Big Sick, starring Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter and Ray Romano. The movie is based on Nanjiani’s real-life courtship with writer and podcast host, Emily V. Gordon.

The movie centers on a Pakistan-born comedian and the unfolding events after meeting a grad student at one of his standup routines. The relationship is complicated by pressure from their parents and Emily’s unexpected illness.
