MOULIN ROUGE is a celebration of truth, beauty, freedom, but above all things, love -set in the infamous, gaudy and glamorous Paris nightclub, circa 1900. Director Baz Luhrmann (STRICTLY BALLROOM, WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S ROMEO + JULIET) brings together gorgeous period design and modern-era pop tunes to create a unique comic/tragic motion picture experience. Nicole Kidman portrays Satine, the Sparkling Diamond, star of the Moulin Rouge and the city's most famous courtesan. Satine is caught between the love of a young writer and another man's obsession. Ewan McGregor is the writer, Christian, who finds himself plunged into this decadent world where anything goes - except falling in love.
