Everyone loves a legend, but in Chicago, there’s only room for one. Velma Kelly (Catherine Zeta Jones) burns in the spotlight as a night-club sensation. When she shoots her philandering husband, she lands on Chicago’s famed murderous row, retains Chicago’s slickest lawyer, Billy Flynn (Richard Gere) and is the centre of the town’s most notorious murder case, only increasing her celebrity.
Roxie Hart (Renee Zellweger) seduced by the city’s promise of style and adventure, dreams of singing and dancing her way to stardom. When Roxie’s abusive lover tries to walk out on her, she too ends up in prison. Billy recognises a made-for-tabloids story. Infamy is Roxie’s ticket to stardom. Billy turns her crime of passion into celebrity headlines, and in his town, where murder is a form of entertainment, she becomes a bone fide star – much to Velma’s chagrin. As Roxie fashions herself as America’s sweetheart, Velma has more than a few surprises in store and the two women stop at nothing to outdo each other in their obsessive pursuit of fame and celebrity.
