Movie Premiere Red Carpet Interviews With Cast of The Big Sick

Love crosses all racial boundaries.

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 standup 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 (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he’s never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.  THE BIG SICK is directed by Michael Showalter (HELLO MY NAME IS DORIS) and produced by Judd Apatow (TRAINWRECK, THIS IS 40) and Barry Mendel (TRAINWRECK, THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS).

LRM was on the red carpet for its movie premiere in Hollywood, Calif. last night. We managed to interview most of the cast and crew including Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, director Michael Showalter, writer Emily V. Gordon, Kurt Braunohler, Adeel Akhtar, Ray Romano, Matty Cardarople and producer Barry Mendel.

The Big Sick will be released in select theaters on June 23 and with a national rollout on July 14.
