This Month’s Highlights

Available November 24

If you’re looking for a great rom-com: The Big Sick

It’s weird to call a movie about a medically induced coma one of the most delightful films of the year, but The Big Sick contains multitudes. Based on the real-life romance of star Kumail Nanjiani and writer Emily V. Gordon, the story is about Kumail (playing himself) and Emily (played by Zoe Kazan), who fall in love only to break up over his Pakistani family’s expectation that he’ll have an arranged marriage. And then she’s put into a medically induced coma. Despite its somewhat bleak premise, The Big Sick goes for huge laughs, heavy catharsis, deep pathos, and knocks all of it out of the park. And man, Ray Romano and Holly Hunt are really that good. Available November 24.

If you loved Obvious Child: Landline

It’s still weird to think of Amazon as a film studio, given the company’s increasingly inescapable presence in just about every facet of our lives, but hey, the movies they pick are good so far! Take, for example, Landline. Director Gillian Robespierre’s follow-up to Obvious Child, Landline is set in ’90s New York City, where a close family is thrown into manic chaos when two sisters (Jenny Slate and Abby Quinn) discover their father is having an affair. Add it to the list of other small personal crises that the sisters have to navigate — a pending marriage, deciding where to go to college — and things just get messier from there. And funnier, of course. Available November 17.

For the Gilmore Girls fans: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Amy Sherman-Palladino’s newest series takes us back to 1958 and a woman who has everything she should want — a family, a great New York City apartment, and a pretty bougie lifestyle, as Migos would say. But then her husband leaves her and upends everything, and in the ensuing chaos, she discovers she’s extremely funny. Like, stand-up comedian funny. The ’50s weren’t a time terribly ready for a bawdy, funny women behind a microphone — which actually works out for the show, because it means lots of scenes of lawyers and judges and cops trying to describe the stuff she says in her act with a straight face, and that gag never gets old. It’s hard to imagine a better premise for Sherman-Palladino’s talents, so The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is bound to explore some fascinating places. Available November 29.
