Directed by Baz Luhrmann. With Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, John Leguizamo, Jim Broadbent. A poet falls for a beautiful courtesan whom a jealous duke covets in this stylish musical, with music drawn from familiar 20th century sources.
Moulin Rouge - "The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return". Baz Luhrmann at his most creative. The characters of the Moulin are a colorful mix that make up an interesting backdrop for a musical love story. I can watch this over and over again!
I've been a fan of Ewan McGregor ever since I saw him in the very dark and disturbing film "Shallow Grave." Big Fish, the Pillow Book, Trainspotting, Emma, Velvet Goldmine, and more. I guess I'm a sucker for a Scottish brogue.
