Movie: The Big Sick

Ever since his bit about the drug cocktail called "cheese" was featured on This American Life in 2010, I've been intrigued by Kumail Nanjiani. I've seen him pop up with wonderful small parts in Portlandia and Garfunkel and Oates, but now he's made an autobiographical movie (written together with his wife Emily V. Gordon) about struggling against cultural differences and parental expectations while discovering love and pursuing the dream of comedy. It is both deeply touching and hilarious as the cheese bit ever was.
