Moulin Rouge - The Movie

Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge is cemented into the world-wide canon of iconic movies. With a glittering cast featuring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor, and a set which would astound the most cynical viewer it's no wonder that Moulin Rouge went on to be one of the most award-nominated movies of all time. When released in the early 2000s Moulin Rouge was nominated for an outstanding 129 awards, winning two Academy Awards, three Golden Globes and one BAFTA. Moulin Rouge's success certainly cemented Luhrmann's stake as a global movie icon.


The year is 1900 and Christian, a young poet and talented writer has come to Paris to pursue a career and become a member of the Bohemian movement there. Christian ends up falling hopelessly in love with Satine, the star of the infamous Moulin Rouge, however, Satine has already been promised to the unscrupulous Duke. A love triangle ensues, as Christian and Satine try to stay together against all odds they are led down a dark and dangerous path but Satine is holding a terrible secret of her own...

Lurhmann's Moulin Rouge is based on the famous Puccini opera, La Boheme!
