Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jan 17th at 4:00 pm for Nine at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Brian wearing an Avenue Q t-shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
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 (Penélope Cruz), his film star muse (Nicole Kidman), his confidant and costume designer (Judi Dench), a young American fashion journalist (Kate Hudson), the whore from his youth (Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson) and his mother (Sophia Loren). The original 1982 Broadway production of Nine, as directed by Tommy Tune, was nominated for twelve Tony Awards and won five, including Best Musical. This feature film version is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago).
