Nine Days (2021, D: Oda) S: Winston Duke, Zazie Beetz, Benedict Wong, Tony Hall, Bill Skarsgård



Now Playing NY & LA, Nationwide August 6

Will (Winston Duke) spends his days in a remote outpost watching the live Point of View (POV) on TV's of people going about their lives, until one subject perishes, leaving a vacancy for a new life on earth. Soon, several candidates — unborn souls — arrive at Will's to undergo tests determining their fitness, facing oblivion when they are deemed unsuitable. But Will soon faces his own existential challenge in the form of free-spirited Emma (Zazie Beetz), a candidate who is not like the others, forcing him to turn within and reckon with his own tumultuous past. Fueled by unexpected power, he discovers a bold new path forward in his own life. Making his feature-film debut after a series of highly acclaimed and award-winning short films and music videos, Japanese Brazilian director Edson Oda delivers a heartfelt and meditative vision of human souls in limbo, aching to be born against unimaginable odds, yet hindered by forces beyond their will...

Written and Directed by:
Edson Oda

Starring:
Winston Duke, Zazie Beetz, Benedict Wong, Tony Hale, Bill Skarsgård, David Rysdahl, Arianna Ortiz

It's like an MCU movie with some of the cast, plus Tony Hale and another Skarsgård. Interesting premise.

There seems to be at least one movie each year that gets solid critical praise - and I don't get it. This does it. The movie's narrative really doesn't take us anywhere and the "philosophical" ramblings are anything but profound. What am I missing?

It's like The Ring but with two more days.

Really enjoyed this. It’s a slow burn pretty much the whole way, but I absolutely loved the final 10 minutes.

Zazie Beetz looks like a very young Halle Berry. She’s terrific in this.

Glad it’s available to everyone now.

I had not heard of this but the cast is impressive. I’ll try to seek this out.
