After winning me and many others at Sundance with their charming, deeply personal comedy The Big Sick, Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon have joined Cinema Royale to talk about bringing their story to the big screen. The film chronicles their courtship and the illness that threatened her life, but also brought Kumail closer to her family. It's a great movie, funny, sweet, and heartfelt, one of the year's best. 

Check out the interview where Kumail and Emily talk (and joke) about what inspired them to make the movie, how they work as a team, and what other chapters in their life might be worth adapting.
