A poet falls for a beautiful courtesan whom a jealous duke covets.
The third film from pop-music-obsessed director Baz Luhrmann tweaks the conventions of the musical genre by mixing a period romance with anachronistic dialogue and songs in the style of his previous Romeo+Juliet (1996).
Ewan McGregor stars as Christian, who leaves behind his bourgeois father during the French belle époque of the late 1890s to seek his fortunes in the bohemian underworld of Montmartre, Paris.
Christian meets the absinthe- and alcohol-addicted artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (John Leguizamo), who introduces him to a world of sex, drugs, music, theater, and the scandalous dance known as the cancan, all at the Moulin Rouge, a decadent dance hall, brothel, and theatre that’s the brainchild of Harold Zidler (Jim Broadbent).
Christian also meets and falls into a tragically doomed romance with the courtesan Satine (Nicole Kidman), who becomes the star of the play he’s writing, which parallels the couple’s romance and utilizes rock music from a century later, including songs by Nirvana, Madonna, the Beatles, and Queen, among others.

Moulin Rouge will not be surpassed this year for an enticing, innovative and joyous film-going experience.
Jason Solomons, Daily Mail
A genuinely exhilarating experience. Moulin Rouge is like the best party ever, to the power of 10.
