Ingrid Thorburn is an unhinged social media stalker with a history of confusing "likes" for meaningful relationships. Taylor Sloane is an Instagram-famous "influencer" whose perfectly curated, boho-chic lifestyle becomes Ingrid's latest obsession. When Ingrid moves to LA and manages to insinuate herself into the social media star's life, their relationship quickly goes from #BFF to #WTF.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Boy meets girl. Girl breaks up with boy. Girl goes into a medically-induced coma and the boy stays by her bedside, dealing with her crazy parents.
Based on a heartwarming true story, THE BIG SICK follows up-and-coming comedian Kumail (Kumail Nanjiani, SILICON VALLEY) as he meets Emily (Zoe Kazan, RUBY SPARKS), a local student. They hit it off beautifully, a perfect couple from the first date. But Kumail comes from a traditional Pakistani family, and he’s expected to get into an arranged marriage with a nice Pakistani girl. Unsure how to bridge his cultures, Kumail keeps them separate… and when Emily finds out she feels betrayed and leaves him.
But when Emily gets mysteriously sick and is put into a medically-induced coma, Kumail is the closest person in her life. As her parents - a glorious Holly Hunter (BROADCAST NEWS) and a revelatory Ray Romano (EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND) - rush to her bedside, dealing with their own issues and cultural differences, Kumail finds himself trapped between worlds and falling back in love with this girl he thought was out of his life.
Funny, sweet and sometimes painfully honest, THE BIG SICK rewrites the rom-com playbook for the 21st century. Written by Nanjiani and his wife Emily Gordon, based on their real-life courtship, THE BIG SICK will make you laugh and cry and then laugh while you’re crying.
From the brilliant, sensitive mind of David Lowery (PETE’S DRAGON) comes A GHOST STORY, an absorbing and beautiful meditation on life, love and the sweep of history.
Reteaming with his AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS stars Casey Affleck (MANCHESTER BY THE SEA) and Rooney Mara (CAROL), Lowery shot his newest film in Austin, Texas with a cast and crew made up only of friends, looking to bringing a comforting warmth to the screen. His story is about loss and that which lives beyond our lives - our legacies, our impacts, our very meaning in existence.
Melancholy and profound, sweet and deep, Lowery’s latest debuted to almost universal acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival, with RogerEbert.com calling it “daring, strange and unforgettable.”
A GHOST STORY may not scare you, but it will forever haunt you.
