"The Big Sick" will surely be one of the year's best movies

From my Sundance dispatch 2.1.17

"All hesitations you might have had about this Judd Apatow-produced film is thrown out the window once Kumail Nanjiani appears in Michael Showalter’s The Big Sick. The film, a touching and heartfelt personal account of the real-life relationship between Nanjiani and his wife Emily Gordon (played beautifully by Zoe Kazan), is one of the best romantic comedies to come around in ages, a future classic of the genre perhaps, because it makes us actually care about the outcome. This is the best Judd Apatow movie and it wasn’t even directed by Apatow."
