What to Watch in June

The Big Sick

Kumail Nanjiani mines the personal terrain of his own relationship with co-writer Emily V. Gordon (played by Zoe Kazan) in The Big Sick, a welcome comedy for the times that is alternately absurdly comedic and strangely relevant in its cultural reflections. Meanwhile, Ana Lily Amirpour's The Bad Batch – the director's return to the screen after the singularly haunting A Girl Walk Homes Alone at Night – comes to theaters following its participation at the 2014 Screenwriters Lab. The Bad Batch sees Amirpour once again placing abnormal species (this time cannibals) in bleak landscapes (this time a Texas wasteland) and letting her frenetic characters run wild. Check out all of the Sundance-supported films hitting theaters and digital platforms this month.
