Famed director and choreographer Bob Fosse used his own life as inspiration for this story about Joe Gideon (Scheider), whose chaotic professional life and accompanying drug habit are starting to take a toll on his health.

“The whole audition sequence at the beginning, which is one of my favorite sequences, where all the dancers are auditioning, but then all this stuff with Jessica Lange and the Gods, and then you see that they’re on a set and she’s talking about his life. It’s extraordinary.” – Greta Gerwig
