Check it Out: Chicago

Chicago, the Academy Award winning musical, stars Renee Zellweger as Roxie Hart andĀ Catherine Zeta-Jones as Velma Kelly. Both women are on 1920s Chicago’s Murderess Row for crimes of passion – Kelly for murdering her husband and sister when she found them in bed together, and Hart for murdering her lover when she found out he was not going to make her famous. Kelly and Hart share Chicago’s slickest, hotshot attorney played by Richard Gere, and fight to gain the fame and notoriety needed to keep them out of the gallows.
