Movie Info

At a waystation in a remote desert, Will (Winston Duke), an arbiter, interviews prospective souls for rebirth. The sudden death of Will's most treasured soul, Amanda, upends his fragile, unusual existence, as numerous candidates vie to occupy the space Amanda left behind. As Will grapples with his grief and struggles to choose between two finalists--Kane the cynic (Bill Skarsgård) and Emma the empath (Zazie Beetz)--he must ultimately confront his own arrested existence if he is to achieve catharsis. Written and directed by Edson Oda.

Nine Days is, in its subdued way, a profound and powerful commentary on life.

December 19, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Although arguably a smidge too ponderous and self-serious for its own good, Nine Days still represents a reasonably promising debut for its writer-director Edson Oda.

December 15, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The rewards are great for viewers who can go with the movie's bold concept.

August 13, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Oda, making an auspicious feature debut, has devised a deliberately stagy - yet surprisingly effective - device to make his point: Life should not be taken for granted.

August 7, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Pretentious and obnoxious.
