Got a chance to check out The Big Sick last night, one of this summer’s movies that everyone’s been raving about. Some thoughts below.
Ajay: You might know Kumail Nanjiani from Silicon Valley. In this movie he ends up telling a story from his real life, playing himself. It’s a really well-done account of what it’s like navigating the world of American romance, and ultimately times where things are almost inhumanely awkward and crushingly tense.
It’s a great love story, and an even better story about being yourself, standing up for who you are, and life as a Pakistani Muslim in today’s America. We both laughed out loud, and a lot. If you’re South Asian, there’s a lot here to enjoy. A must see!
Mona: Cute! 💋💩🏥
