Funny, Nine has always been my favorite number. And I love musicals. So when last weekend turned out really wet, I thought to myself "What a perfect late afternoon for the big screen." I went expecting to be musically entertained, and I certainly was. What I wasn't expecting was a work of art on the level of the "first things", a masterpiece about the creative process itself (shades of "This is It") and the pressures of life in the spotlight. It was moving, it was illuminating. It is not to be missed.
