THE BIG SICK dir. Michael Showalter (2017)
Kumail's family was incredible, Ray Romano was a revelation, Holly Hunter was at almost peak Holly Hunter, and Zoe Kazan finally won me over. Kumail has a brave performance as a coward, and the comic timing of this movie was just terrific. Mr. Bax from the Battleship Pretension suggests it will become "a modern classic" and I'm inclined to agree.
PS the most recent BP podcast with Scott was really fun
