Daniel Day-Lewis. Nicole Kidman. Marion Cotillard. Penelope Cruz. Kate Hudson. Sophia Loren. Judi Dench. And...Fergie?

Despite the latter, I absolutely cannot wait to see Rob Marshall's Nine. Nine is based on Federico Fellini's semi-autobiographical story of a famed film director, Guido Contini (Day-Lewis) meeting his mid-life crisis both personally and professionally, and the women who surround him.

Nine is comprised of one of the most winning and nominated casts captured on the silver screen in some time. Seventeen Oscar nominations alone and seven Oscar wins. Daniel Day-Lewis is one of my favourite actors. Playing roles so few and far between I am waiting with bated breath to see him in a musical. If Rob Marshall's Chicago (2002) is any indication of how fantastic Nine will be, I think we are in for a treat. Opens December 25th. Merry Christmas to me!


Nuit Blanche 100309

I experienced this awesome event for the first time last night. The highlight for me was the Vanity Fair Portraits exhibit at the ROM. This is something I would have wanted to see apart from Nuit Blanche. It really provided an excellent backdrop to illustrate the impact and cultural importance of this magazine. I have been reading it for several years and will continue to.

We also saw some large scale pieces:

Rabbit Balloon, 2007
Jeff Koons

Beautiful Light: 4 LETTER WORD MACHINE, 2009
