Genre: Comedy, Romance. Dir: Michael Showalter. Country: USA.
Kumail is striving to find success in comedy and constantly negotiating with his traditional Muslim parents who are pressuring him to agree to an arranged marriage.
He is dating Emily (Zoe Kazan), but finds this secret too hard to maintain.
Just they decide to break up, Emily is suddenly hospitalised in a coma with a life-threatening illness, and Kumail is faced with meeting Emily’s parents (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who still believe he is their daughter’s partner.
A comedy of near-constant laughs and heartfelt warmth.
