"Why did you bring me here if you wanted me to not have an american life? We come here but we pretend we're still back there. That's so stupid."
Kumail is a character I can personally relate to when it comes to family. The Big Sick is a rom-com drama that's done right. The humor is filled with religious, racial, social, and relatable commentaries that excels through the characters in a heartwarming way. The characters felt like real life people, which they are in some degree since The Big Sick is based on a true story of Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, the interracial couple that wrote the screenplay for the film.
The Big Sick is funny, entertaining, and emotional at the right times. I do wonder if Kumail Nanjiani's mother is like the mother in the film because if she is, I hope Kumail finds peace with her someday.
