msmichel's rating of the film The Big Sick

The 'A' list performances by Holly Hunter (wow), Ray Romano and Zoe Kazan make up for some scripting weaknesses in this mostly true tale by lead Kumail Nanjiani. Kazan is a heartbreaker here bringing an emotional wallop we haven't seen her capture since 'Ruby Sparks'. Holly Hunter has some terrific moments here but it may be Romano's midnight confession that steals the film. Slickly directed and well paced.
