Film synopsis: Pakistan-born comedian Kumail Nanjiani and grad student Emily Gardner fall in love but struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, Kumail finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family's expectations, and his true feelings.
This film is loosely based on the relationship between actor-writer Kumail Nanjiani and his wife writer-producer Emily V. Gordon. While this film highlights Kumail’s particular experience as a Pakistani immigrant, this movie has been praised for highlighting the struggles of intercultural relationships and the tension between South-Asian and American cultures.
