The Big Sick Movie Trailer

Produced by Judd Apatow, The Big Sick is based on the real-life courtship between grad student Emily Gordon (Zoe Kazan) and Pakistan-born comedian/actor Kumail Nanjiani, who portrays himself in the movie. Emily became ill while they were in the midst of dating, and she had to be placed in a medically-induced coma. Kumail notified her family and met them for the first time under the unusual circumstances. As evidenced by The Big Sick trailer, the fact that Kumail is Pakistani and Emily is white only made things more complicated and awkward. Related Article: The Big Sick: History vs. Hollywood
