Widely credited with reinventing the modern movie musical, Moulin Rouge! exploded onto screens when it debuted in 2001. Celebrating some of the best-loved popular music of the twentieth century, the film found audiences ready to enjoy the same break-into-song storytelling currently enjoying its latest reincarnation in the popular television series Glee.
Along with a multi-platinum selling soundtrack led by the single “Lady Marmalade,” the film went on to broadly influence fashion, music, design and popular culture, and was nominated for eight Academy Awards® including Best Picture, winning two for Catherine Martin’s production design and costume design.
Nicole Kidman (The Hours, Australia) sizzles in her Oscar®-nominated role as Satine, the seductive courtesan and star of a popular French nightclub that caters to society’s decadent elite. When she unwittingly draws Christian, a struggling writer played by Ewan McGregor (Amelia), into her spell, true love turns to tragedy. Moulin Rouge! offers a kaleidoscopic ride through a world of song, dance, romance and drama that celebrates truth, beauty, freedom and above all things, love.
Now, for the first time ever on Blu-ray, audiences will be able to view Moulin Rouge! in a whole new way. Can you believe I have never seen this movie? I have no good excuse as to why not, except that it’s likely one my husband won’t watch with me so I never got around to it. Soon I will have my very own Blu-ray of this movie and will have to see if it’s as amazing as I’ve heard. Since Buz Luhrmann directed it and I heart him for his work on William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, I’m sure it won’t disappoint.
