Movie Summary

Director:
Rob Marshall (I)
Released:
2009
Rating:
PG-13
Nine is a 2009 musical about a film director whose life is falling apart as he tries to finish his latest film. Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) is struggling to get his ninth film made. As he muses about his lost youth, he thinks about the women who have impacted his life, hoping that they might help him find inspiration for his new film. While he loves his wife, Louisa (Marion Cotillard), he also keeps an unbalanced mistress named Carla (Penelope Cruz) simply because she makes him feel young again. At the same time, Guido begins to dream about his leading lady, Claudia Jenssen (Nicole Kidman), because she represents perfection to him. He also looks to his best friend, Lilli La Fleur (Judi Dench), for help, but she has seen too many of his personal failings to be of any help. Ultimately, Guido must summon the memory of a prostitute from his youth, Saraghina (Stacey Ferguson), hoping that she might help him untangle the mess that his life has become, all because of his strange relationships with women.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Sophisticated, sexy and stylishly decked out, Rob Marshall's disciplined, tightly focused film impresses and amuses.

  • 30

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Straining to capture artistic frenzy, it descends into vulgar chaos, less a homage to Federico Fellini's "8 ½" (its putative inspiration) than a travesty.

    Los Angeles Times Betsy Sharkey

    Because Nine is a musical, it would help if your leading man could sing, and I don't mean carry a tune, but actually flex some vocal muscle. Again, love Daniel Day-Lewis, excellent...
