Passion, fantasy, lust, love, art, style, delusions, dreams – life has always been a circus for world-famous 1960s movie director Guido Contini (DANIEL DAY-LEWIS) . . . only now he can’t escape it in the vibrant and provocative dramatic musical, NINE

Renowned for his brilliant moviemaking and desired by many, Guido is about to kick off production on his highly anticipated ninth picture, ITALIA, when, suddenly, the bottom drops out of both his ample creative powers and his fervid love life, as they simultaneously unravel out of control.

Surrounded by a panorama of astonishing women—his tempting mistress Carla (PENÉLOPE CRUZ), his devoted wife Luisa (MARION COTILLARD), his muse Claudia (NICOLE KIDMAN), his costume designer and confidante Lilli (JUDI DENCH), a flirty journalist from Vogue (KATE HUDSON), an instructive prostitute from his childhood (STACY FERGUSON) and his beloved Mamma (SOPHIA LOREN) – Guido searches for inspiration and possible salvation amid the free fall.


As he does, the historic Stage 5 at Cinecitta Studios in Rome is lit up by Guido’s most evocative desires, memories and dreams—which transform into dynamic, expansive musical fantasies—as NINE draws ever closer to the moment when Guido must overcome his demons and call “Action!”

The innovative, award-winning Broadway musical sensation inspired by the movies—NINE—comes full circle back to the screen stirringly re-invented as the richly cinematic story of an artist’s epic mid-life crisis by Academy Award®-nominated director Rob Marshall, who brought CHICAGO so dazzlingly to life. 
Based on the Tony Award® winning Broadway musical NINE, with book by Arthur L. Kopit, music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and adaptation from the Italian by Mario Fratti, the film is written by Michael Tolkin and Anthony Minghella.  The film is produced by Marc Platt, Harvey Weinstein, John DeLuca and Rob Marshall.  The executive producers are Kelly Carmichael, Michael Dryer, Gina Gardini, Ryan Kavanaugh, Arthur L. Kopit, Tucker Tooley, Bob Weinstein and Maury Yeston.


It features Oscar®-nominated costume design by two-time Academy Award®-winner Colleen Atwood (Memoirs of a GeishaChicago) and Oscar®-nominated art direction by Academy Award®-winners John Myhre and Gordon Smith (Chicago). It was distributed theatrically by The Weinstein Company and has a run time of approximately 119 minutes. It has been rated PG-13 for sexual content and smoking.
