Moulin Rouge
2001
*****
Director: Baz Luhrmann
Cast: Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, Jim Broadbent, Richard Roxburgh

This flamboyant musical is something else. The love story between a writer and a showgirl is skeletal but Baz Luhrmann’s musical and visual genius compensates more than adequately. Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman are solid in the lead, and both sing their own songs.
