This romantic musical is a 10 in our books.
Love and music are two things so intertwined in life that the romantic musical Nine, set to open December 25 in the US and February 25 in Hong Kong, is long overdue. Think ‘Moulin Rouge’ except bigger!
Based on Federico Fellini’s autobiography, 8 1/2, Nine explores the quest of one man – Guido Contini, played by the dashing Danile Day-Lewis – to find balance in his personal life. We are given a glimpse of the relationships he has with his wife, mistress, muse, agent, and mother. This movie is not at all shy of big names, with Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench, Kate Hudson and Sophia Loren as part of its star-studded cast. This wildly successful Broadway musical, with a book by Arthur Kopit and Mario Fratti and music and lyrics by Maury Yeston, is all set to debut on the big-screen.
The critics have certainly taken notice of this blockbuster, nominating it for 5 Golden Globe Awards and 10 Critics Choice awards including Best Motion Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Song and Best Acting Ensemble among many others.
