“A genuinely exhilarating experience. Moulin Rouge is like the best party ever, to the power of 10.” – Film 4
If you’re a true romantic, you already know the story: Christian (Ewan McGregor) leaves behind his bourgeois family during the French Belle Époque of the late 1890s and moves to Paris to pursue a true bohemian lifestyle. While there, he meets the absinthe-and-alcohol-addicted artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (John Leguizamo), who introduces him to a wild world of sex, drugs, music, theater and the scandalous dance known as the cancan, all at the infamously decadent Moulin Rouge. Of course, he also falls into a doomed love affair with the beautiful courtesan Satine (Nicole Kidman), who becomes the star of the play he’s writing. Along the way, there’s much heart-swelling singing, dancing and romancing, featuring songs by Nirvana, Madonna, The Beatles and Queen, among many others. And we all find out that the greatest thing you’ll ever learn is to love and be loved in return (with a little help from the Green Fairy, of course)! (Directed by Baz Luhrmann, 2001, Australia/USA, 127 mins., Rated PG-13)
