East meets West in this awkward true story of how Pakistan born comedian Kumail Nanjiani met his American born wife (Kazan). The film is a funny, heartfelt and intelligent look at the ups and downs of a cross-cultural relationship after one gets very ill. Released in June 2017, the film has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
