Pakistan-born comedian Kumail Nanjiani and grad student Emily Gardner fall in love but struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, Kumail finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family's expectations, and his true feelings.
A young girl comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads with a mother who's an eccentric artist and an alcoholic father who would stir the children's imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.
"Logan Lucky" is very similar to the heist movie "The Killing" in 1956 by Stanley Kubrick. The difference is that "Logan Lucky" is a comedy while "The Killing" is a film noir.
"Logan Lucky" has a smartly written script. The heist is carried out in an intelligent way with some clever technology. The movie deserves a nomination for Oscar original screenplay.
Thanks to the brilliant performance from the cast, especially Daniel Craig and Adam Driver, the film achieves genuine comedy effect in the sense that it can really make the audience laugh a lot.
As Jimmy's daughter sings "Country Road", I think of the years when I grew up listening to the song. John Denver has truly influenced several generations. Not coincidentally, the performance takes place in the state of "West Virginia".
