The Big Sick, the new romantic comedy based on the true life romance between co-writers Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, is scheduled to hit Digital HD on September 5th and Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on September 19th courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Directed by the always hilarious Michael Showalter and starring Nanjiana along side Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter and Ray Romano, The Big Sick has been earning rave reviews as this year’s must-see romantic comedy.
Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, The Big Sick tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Nanjiani), who connects with grad student Emily (Kazan) after one of his stand-up 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 (Hunter and Romano) who he’s never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.
