The Big Sick: RomCom Movies (That Wannabe Film Class Ep. 16)

In this week’s class, the team sits down to talk The Big Sick, 2017’s based-on a true story RomCom hit. We compare the movie story to the real-life tale of Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon’s romance, talk about the movie’s ability to represent different cultures and perspectives, and explore how it utilizes the RomCom formula in new ways. Along the way, we also discuss the Bollywood movie scene (much to Ben’s excitement), further analyze Chloe’s love of villains, and allow technical difficulties to sidetrack us into a conversation about 2005 animated film Robots… for some reason.
