Did You Know?
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival where it was very well received, which started a bidding war between Sony, Focus Features, Amazon, & Netflix for the distribution rights. Co-creator of the film, Kumail Nanjiani wanted the film to have theatrical distribution, which eliminated Netflix from the bidding war because they're not a proponent in that distribution model. The film's distribution rights were eventually bought for around $12 million by Amazon who is a big proponent of the theatrical experience, with all of its films getting at least some kind of theatrical run. The $12 million dollar deal is one of the largest deals in Sundance's history.
Although the film is set in Chicago and Emily is said to be at "City Hospital," a sign for Katz Women's Hospital at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York is clearly visible when Kumail arrives.
