Still shot from the movie: Nine.

Nine

This film adaption of a Broadway musical is about Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis). He may be a world famous film director, but the man isn't directing his private life with quite the same polish. Nor would he like the spotlight to be pointed at the many women who play a role there, such as his wife (Marion Cotillard), his mistress (Penelope Cruz), and his mother (Sophia Loren).

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

How does Guido’s personal choices contribute to his physical health and inability to write? Why does Guido appear to rely on others to solve his problems? How does his lack of personal responsibility hinder him from moving forward?

What challenges does a movie director encounter when adapting a stage play? Why is it difficult to translate the spectacle of live theater to film?

What roles do repentance and forgiveness play in this story?
