The Nines


The Nines consists of three short films, each featuring the same actors (Ryan Reynolds, Hope Davis, Melissa McCarthy) in different — and sometimes overlapping — roles.

“The Prisoner” tells the story of a troubled television star who finds himself under house arrest.

“Reality Television” is a half-hour episode of “Behind the Screen,” a Project Greenlight-style documentary series tracking the process of creating a network television drama.

“Knowing” finds an acclaimed videogame designer, his wife and daughter facing car trouble deep in the woods.

Together, the three stories form a single narrative that explores the relationships between author and character, actor and role, creator and creation. Alternately funny and unsettling, The Nines is like a riddle where the answer is the question: “How does it all add up?”
