Fresh rom-com and sweetly moving film

December 27, 2017

Screening this Friday and Saturday night is a fresh, funny and romantic comedy, The Big Sick (M).

The story is based on the real-life courtship between Kumail who is a comedian, from a strict Muslim family, and Emily a grad student.

When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, he is forced to deal with Emily’s parents, whom he has never met, plus the emotional tug-of-war in this life-affirming yet authentically painful story.

Wonderful performances make the second film entertaining, engaging and sweetly moving.

In Gifted (M), Frank Adler is a single man raising a child prodigy — his spirited young niece Mary, in a coastal town in Florida.

Frank’s plans for a normal school life for Mary are foiled when the seven-year-old’s mathematical abilities come to the attention of his formidable mother, who has other plans.

Screening times are at 7pm on Friday and Saturday, December 29 and 30.
