The Big Sick movie. Interesting clips about family rejection based on religious and cultural differences!

    If anyone has not yet watched the fantastic 2017 movie "The Big Sick", I would highly recommend it!

    Without giving too much away, there are two scenes in it that we as ex JWs will relate to.

    The first scene shows the main character being chastised and rejected by his parents for not following their religious and cultural expectations and marrying a Muslim girl. The parents effectively "disfellowship" him from their family! He is not welcome to even eat with them as has been the custom all his life.

    The next clip shows how he handles that! It is brilliant!

    That movie is awesome! I was thinking the same thing with the shunning. My husband and I laughed at those scenes but we also kind of looked at each other. I'm not DF but he is. Thankfully, his family doesn't shun him. My family partly shuns him.
