Nine parents guide


Overall C

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).
