The Big Sick screening 7:30pm on Saturday 2nd December

Pakistan-born comedian Kumail Nanjiani and grad student Emily Gardner fall in love but struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, Kumail finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family’s expectations, and his true feelings.

Mark Kermode calls it “the year’s most likably unlikely romcom”.
