The Big Sick is the surprise romantic comedy smash of the year — and its co-writers and producers, the real-life couple Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, are here to share how they brought their story to the big screen.

The film follows Kumail (playing himself), who comes from a traditional Muslim family, and Emily (Zoe Kazan), your average American, who meet and fall in love and must deal with culture clash — until Emily contracts a mysterious illness, complicating things even further. Hear from the creators and cast of The Big Sick on what it took to turn a true tale of love, identity and sickness into one of the most acclaimed movies of the year.
