The Nines

A metaphysical mind-bender following the lives of three artists (all played by Ryan Reynolds) in three short films that intertwine, exploring the notions of creativity and sanity. In the first Reynolds is a struggling soap actor who has a nervous breakdown; in the second he plays a TV writer who sells out to move his career forward; and in the final short he and his family are stranded in the desert with car trouble. Small clues in each story hint at the idea that Reynolds is the unsuspecting and all-powerful 'author' of all three of these scenarios - the subtle humour and tense drama is that he hasn't woken up to this surreal fact.
