Mini Review - Nine

Nine (out Jan 21) is a musical based on 8½, Italian director Federico Fellini's highly acclaimed film from 1963. It's been amazingly directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago) and has a wonderful cast (with Marion Cotillard the stand out). Sadly, I didn't find the songs particularly memorable. I didn't feel the rush to stand up and sing (like in my other favourite musicals). Good but not great. Grade: B+.
