A new musical movie comes out Christmas Day, and I'm quite intrigued by it. 'NINE'* is a musical I know very little about, other than it was on Broadway, the revival starred Antonio Banderas, and now they have turned it into a star-studded film. According to BroadwayWorld.com, NINE " revolves around one central character, Guido Contini a film director in the Fellini mold. He is contracted to write and direct a film, but is unable to come up with a suitable plot. After recent box office failures, he finds himself drifting towards a nervous breakdown. Guido finds himself examining his past flawed relationships with the many women who have come through his life and the struggle to act his mature age of 40--as opposed to nine. " Starring Daniel-Day Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Kate Hudson, Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Sophia Loren, and Dame Judi Dench, this film sounds like it could have extreme potential. I am going to have to do my homework before I fork out $8.00 to see it though...
