Global Pillage host Deborah Frances-White talks with Sindhu Vee and Ned Sedgwick on cross-cultural romances, arranged marriages and The Big Sick.
Don’t miss the hilarious romantic comedy of the summer, The Big Sick produced by Judd Apatow and starring Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani.
When Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Nanjiani) connects with grad student Emily (Zoe Kazan) after one of his standup sets, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing. But this further complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents.
Then Emily is beset with a mystery illness forcing Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he’s never met while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.
