An Uber driver by day and a hopeful professional stand-up comedian by night, Kumail, the Pakistani-American son of an immigrant, struggles to make ends meet, as his family who have high hopes of seeing him married, incessantly auditions nice Muslim brides to arrange a prosperous marriage. Instead, despite their efforts, Kumail will fall for the charms of Emily, an American grad student–and even though both swear they don’t want a real relationship–they keep growing closer. But, suddenly, revealing his romance to his traditional parents will be the least of Kumail’s problems, as Emily’s health collapses from a grave illness. Can Kumail handle this serious crisis, especially now that he needs to make some difficult decisions about his life?

Who knew that Kumail, the nerd from the Silicon Valley series, would star in and write such a good movie!? From the poster and even from the title of the movie I still didn’t imagine what I was getting in for.
But what a surprise because it was such a good movie, the acting was really good and the story was amazing.
It has sadness, joy, anger moments and so much laughs… it’s almost a complete movie that will leave you very emotional.
Now I understand why it was nominated for an Oscar.

About Philippe Antonio

My name is Philippe Antonio and I love movies! Have a movie collection that I wouldn't even trade for a new Ferrari (the gasoline is to expensive) ... I love to draw and have my art on another website Blackbrush.se. Besides that, I also love Gadgets and Zlatan ... well, football generally. I Founded this website for my comic figure at first but has lately just focused on movie/game news, reviews and that stuff. So hope you liked it!
