About

Will (Winston Duke) spends his days in a remote outpost watching the live Point of View (POV) on TV's of people going about their lives, until one subject perishes, leaving a vacancy for a new life on earth. Soon, several candidates — unborn souls — arrive at Will's to undergo tests determining their fitness, facing oblivion when they are deemed unsuitable. But Will soon faces his own existential challenge in the form of free-spirited Emma (Zazie Beetz), a candidate who is not like the others, forcing him to turn within and reckon with his own tumultuous past. Fueled by unexpected power, he discovers a bold new path forward in his own life. Making his feature-film debut after a series of highly acclaimed and award-winning short films and music videos, Japanese Brazilian director Edson Oda delivers a heartfelt and meditative vision of human souls in limbo, aching to be born against unimaginable odds, yet hindered by forces beyond their will...

Reviews

  • "At the risk of overselling Edson Oda’s ultra-original, meaning-of-life directorial debut, there’s a big difference between NINE DAYS and pretty much every other film ever made. NINE DAYS invites you to re-consider your entire worldview."
    - Variety
  • "“Edson Oda’s NINE DAYS is one of the most unexpected experiences I’ve had in almost a decade of going to Sundance.”"
    - RogerEbert.com
  • "“The breakout “Black Panther” star showed his range in “Us” almost a year ago, but what he accomplishes here is on a completely different level.”"
