One of the most significant films of the year, with an all super star studded cast and already creating noteworthy Oscar buzz and rave reviews, “Nine” is set to please.
At the premier of the glamorous musical film in London’s Leicester Square, the glamorous stars of the film joined to celebrate one of the most important films in the history of musical films.
“Nine” directed by Rob Marshal (who directed my favorite musical of all time “Chicago”), and stars an all-singing-and-dancing cast of Academy Award Winners Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Dame Judi Dench, Sophia Loren, alongside Kate Hudson and Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson.
The story revolves around the life of film director Guido Contini played by Day-Lewis. He reaches a creative and personal crisis of epic proportion, while balancing the numerous women in his life including his wife, his mistress, his muse, his costume designer, an American fashion journalist, his glamorous courtesan and his mother.
In an interview with the BBC at the London premier, Day-Lewis, who sang and danced for his role along with the other cast members, said: “We started in the same place, one of abject humility and dread… Rob Marshall manages to create an atmosphere that is so joyful and vibrant and at least kids you into believing that you have it in you to do it.”
Director Rob Marshall said: “I didn’t know half of these people had these talents until they came and auditioned which was great. I didn’t know if Daniel could get to where he got with his singing,” Marshall added, saying his vocal prowess was “extraordinary“.
