Beetz stars alongside Winston Duke in the Sony Classic’s feature NINE DAYS, an existential fantasy that ponders purgatory, the afterlife, and the fate of unborn souls. The Edson Oda directorial debut feature released in theaters nationwide on August 6, 2021, with The New York Times signifying Duke and Beetz as delivering “performances of the ages.” The film first premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival and earned a nomination for the coveted Grand Jury Prize at the festival.
