Chicago, 1929. Murder. Passion. Fame. Sex. And All That Jazz.
The Windy City's promise of adventure and opportunity dazzle Roxie Hart (Renee Zellweger), an outwardly innocent performer who dreams of singing and dancing her way out of her ho-hum life. Roxie's one wish is to follow in the golden footsteps of vaudeville performer Velma Kelly (Catherine Zeta-Jones).
Roxie gets her wish when some very wrong steps land both the star and starlet in prison for separate murder charges.
Under the crooked care of the prison Matron 'Mama' Morton (Queen Latifah), Roxie meets up with legendary lawyer Billy Flynn (Richard Gere). He agrees to take Roxie's case for an immodest fee. Roxie's career explodes, to the chagrin of her mentor. But the clever Miss Kelly has a few surprises left for her second act...
Based on the award-winning musical by John Kander, Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, CHICAGO is a stunning spectacle full of intrigue, love, betrayal, rivalry and friendship, a pageant of music and dance that adroitly shifts between reality and fantasy, as Roxie's world moves from the prison to the courtroom to the stage.
