“Find another genius, I can’t be one or become one. I can’t even tell how I’ll begin.”
With less than a week before the cameras roll on his new film, Guido Contini searches wildly for inspiration. Without a script and with his personal life in tatters, Rome’s most celebrated film director finds himself faced with what appears to be the ruin of his career, his marriage, and his sanity.
Set against the exquisite backdrop of Rome’s chic sixties, “Nine” explores one man’s struggle to establish a sense of his own identity through his art. Winning the Drama Desk Award for Most Outstanding Musical and the Tony Awards for Best Musical and Best Original Score, this sumptuous combination of naturalism, expressionism and film will seduce you into considering your own assumptions about art, identity, and romance.
