English Summary:

Chicago is a 2002 American musical crime comedy-drama film based on the stage-musical of the same name. It explores the themes of celebrity, scandal, and corruption in Chicago during the Jazz Age. The film stars Renée Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Richard Gere. Chicago centers on Velma Kelly (Zeta-Jones) and Roxie Hart (Zellweger), two murderesses who find themselves in jail together awaiting trial in 1920s Chicago. Velma, a vaudevillian, and Roxie, a housewife, fight for the fame that will keep them from the gallows. The film marks the theatrical directorial debut of Rob Marshall, who also choreographed the film, and was adapted by screenwriter Bill Condon, with music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. Critically lauded, Chicago won six Academy Awards in 2003, including Best Picture, the first musical to win Best Picture since Oliver! in 1968.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Chicago, 1929. Gyilkosság. Szenvedély. Hírnév. Szex. És jazz, mindhalálig. A Szeles Város megannyi kalanddal és lehetőséggel kecsegtet. Ez a csábítás elkápráztatja Roxie Hartot, a látszólag ártatlan színésznőt, aki arról álmodozik, hogy az ének és a tánc kimenti őt élete egyhangúságából. Roxie egyetlen vágya, hogy Velma Kelly varietéművésznő dicső nyomdokaiba léphessen. Vágya kicsit másképp teljesül, amikor néhány nagyon elhibázott lépés folytán a sztár és a sztárjelölt is börtönbe kerül gyilkosság vádjával. A MAtron Morton börtön felügyelete alatt Roxie találkozik Billy Flynn-nel, a legendás ügyvéddel, aki elvállalja Roxie ügyét, egy nem szerény összegért. Roxie berobban a csúcsra, mentorának nagy bosszúságára. Ám az agyafúrt Miss Kelly is tartogat néhány meglepetést a második felvonásra.

  • Catherine Zeta-Jones as Velma Kelly, a showgirl who is arrested for the murders of her husband, Charlie, and her sister, Veronica.
  • Richard Gere as Billy Flynn, a duplicitous, greedy, smooth-talking lawyer who turns his clients into celebrities to gain public support for them. Music superstar Michael Jackson was at one point considered for the role.

  • Colm Feore as Martin Harrison, the prosecutor in both Roxie and Velma's court cases.
  • Lucy Liu as Kitty "Go To Hell Kitty" Baxter, a millionaire heiress who briefly outshines Velma and Roxie when she kills her husband and his two mistresses.
  • Dominic West as Fred Casely, Roxie's deceitful lover and murder victim.
  • Mýa as Mona, a prisoner on Murderess' Row who killed her artist boyfriend after discovering he had multiple affairs.
  • Jayne Eastwood as Mrs. Borusewicz, the Harts' neighbor from across the hall.
  • Chita Rivera as Nicky, a prostitute. Rivera originated the role of Velma Kelly in the Broadway musical Chicago in 1975; her appearance in the film is a cameo.
  • Susan Misner as Liz, a prisoner on Murderess' Row who killed her husband after he wouldn't stop popping his gum.
  • Denise Faye as Annie, a prisoner on Murderess' Row who killed her boyfriend after discovering he was a Mormon with multiple wives.
