The Big Sick (film) Tue 26th Dec (Boxing Day), 7.30pm

Friday, November 17, 8:00 am - Tuesday, December 26, 8:00 pm

Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, the film tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail, who meets grad student Emily 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 face 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. Forget the title – this is really a film about hope. Rating:15 Runtime: 119 minutes (screened with subtitles)

£5 (one price) pay on the door
