Based on the original 1982 Broadway production of “NINE,” with music and lyrics by Maury Yeston, (it won five Tony Awards including Best Musical), “NINE” is a vibrant and provocative musical that follows the life of world famous film director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) as he reaches a creative and personal crisis of epic proportion, while balancing the numerous women in his life including his wife (Marion Cotillard), his mistress (Penelope Cruz), his film star muse (Nicole Kidman), his confidant and costume designer (Judi Dench), an American fashion journalist (Kate Hudson), the whore from his youth (Fergie) and his mother (Sophia Loren).
The film is directed by Rob Marshall the guy who did the film version of "CHICAGO" starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Rennee Zellwegger.
