Already charming audiences at the US stint of the festival in Utah back in January, next month will see Amazon Studios’ The Big Sick grace Sundance London (1st-4th June), taking place at Picturehouse Central.

Boasting Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani and What If/Ruby Sparks acrtress Zoe Kazan, it focuses on their blossoming relationship as Nanjiani’s character wrestles with the desire to defy the strict Pakistani ‘arranged marriage’ traditions.

Complete with razor-sharp one-liners about terrorists, Uber and The X-Files, bolstered by great support from Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond) and Holly Hunter (Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice), The Big Sick may just help to cure a flagging genre in the rom-com.

The film officially hits UK cinemas on 28th July 2017.
