Rob Marshall

This Oscar-winning musical stars Renée Zellweger (pictured) as aspiring singer, Roxy Hart, who is sent to prison for shooting her lying lover. In prison she meets tabloid darling and headline singer, Velma Kelly, who has been jailed for a double murder. With the help of a slick Chicago lawyer, Roxy learns to play the media game and vies for the valuable press attention that will get her out of jail.

A huge hit upon its release in 2002, Chicago earnt a staggering 13 Oscar nominations, including a win in the prestigious Best Picture category and Best Supporting Actress for Catherine Zeta-Jones. But despite all its awards and huge box-office success, it wasn't universally popular with the critics, many considering it to be more akin to a stagy TV drama than an Oscar-worthy epic. Still, if you're a fan of the stage show, you're definitely enjoy this. If you're new to the story or are expecting another Moulin Rouge!, then it's probably one to avoid.
