Film Series: Moulin Rouge!

2001. USA/Australia. Dir: Baz Luhrmann. With Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor. 127 min.

 

In fin de siècle Paris, a bohemian loverboy endeavors to croon an ambitious courtesan away from the brink of self-destruction. At once feverishly campy yet heartfelt, Luhrmann’s vision electrifies the lush costume dramas of yore unto a new state of being, boldly charting a path forward for the modern movie musical.
