Macon Film Guild at the Douglass Theatre " Nine Days"
September 12, 2021 –
Admission $5 Showings @ 2pm, 5pm and 7:30pm Discussion following the 2pm show Masks required, COVID-safe seating (USA, drama/fantasy, 124 min., rated R for language) In this Sundance Film Festival award winner, a man named Will (Winston Duke) interviews five unborn souls (played by Zazie Beetz, Tony Hale and Bill Skarsgard among them) to determine which one can be given life on Earth. The last candidate, after nine days of questions and exercises, is the winner. “One of the most unexpected experiences I’ve had in almost a decade of going to Sundance. The description read like something that could be too precious with its high-concept, turning into little more than pretentious pondering on the meaning of life. But [writer-director Edson Oda] and his team have delivered a knockout piece of filmmaking… ‘Nine Days’ is moving, graceful, and powerful storytelling.” –Rogerebert.com
