f. Best movie I’ve seen in a while: “ The Big Sick ,” a romantic/teary comedy/life-tale. Really moving, really funny in spots. Ray Romano is wryly hilarious, and Holly Hunter a great mom, and Zoe Kazan, whom I’d never heard of, terrific as the love interest. But Kumail Najiani, the thirtyish protagonist (who nearly turned antagonist) is great in this real-life story navigating love with a cool American while his Pakistani parents want him to live by their arranged-marriage ethos. I laughed, I cried, I was touched. Two well-spent hours.
