Chicago (2000) is a musical starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Gere and Renée Zellweger in prohibition era Chicago, and Zeta-Jones is a singer in a speakeasy convicted of killing her manager (her husband) and his lover (who was also her sister and partner in her act), and Zellweger is an aspiring singer who kills the man who she's having an affair with when she finds out that he had no intentions of introducing her to anyone that would be able to move her singing career forward. They become friends behind bars, and Zeta-Jones' lawyer (Gere) sees the appeal that Zellweger would have to a jury, and takes her case. The movie is a very fun musical, full of highly entertaining songs. It is based off of the broadway play of the same name, and won seveal Oscars. The DVD set is full of special features, including a song from the stage version that was not in the movie. I really enjoy musicals, and the time period the story takes place in, so I find this to be one of my favorite musicals.
