Bill C’s Review – 4 out of 5
This was my favorite movie at SXSW in March and is my favorite movie of the year so far. This opens in N.Y. and L.A. this weekend and more widely in the coming weeks, Below is an excerpt from what I wrote back in March. Definitely go see this!
A romantic comedy based on the real life romance of Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani as they deal with family issues (including those of being a Muslim in America) and her illness. This is very funny and moving. Nanjiani also stars and this has a good supporting cast including Ray Romano and Holly Hunter. Judd Apatow was one of the producers and he, Emily and Kumail had a great Q+A including a discussion of how Apatow helps push people to maximize their creativity in the writing process (as he did with Amy Schumer in Trainwreck and Lena Dunham with Girls).
