Moulin Rouge! - Baz Luhrmann
with Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, John Leguizamo, Jim Broadbent. 128 mins + trailers.
I’ve never waited for permission to do anything. People just say, ‘He’s a bit crazy, but let’s give it a go.’
Join us for a mini-season of three of Luhrmann's best loved films, fusing story-telling with pop culture in glorious technicolor:
William Shakespeare’s Romeo +Juliet “Luhrmann's adaptation refuses to age”
The Great Gatsby, “a wayward, lavishly theatrical celebration”
Moulin Rouge! "a jukebox musical romantic drama"
Baz Luhrmann’s Academy Award®-nominated period musical is a giddy, glorious spectacle. Ewan McGregor is Christian, a young writer seeking his fortune in Paris’s bohemian underworld. In Montmartre, he meets alcoholic painter Toulouse-Lautrec (Leguizamo), who introduces him to a world of sex, drugs, music, theatre, and the scandalous dance known as the cancan at the Moulin Rouge – and it’s there that Christian falls for courtesan Satine (Nicole Kidman), who becomes the star of his new play, paralleling the couple's own tragic romance.
