Moulin Rouge is the 2001 highly stylized musical feature starring Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman, and is now available on Amazon. Theater legend and director Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet) focuses his extravagant vision on the bohemian streets of Paris at the turn of the century, where young British writer Christian (McGregor) is obsessed with freedom, beauty, truth, and above all love. He joins a bohemian theater band of crazy characters that lead him to the Parisian nightlife hotspot The Moulin Rouge. There Christian first sets his eyes on the beautiful Satine (Kidman), the star of the Moulin Rouge and escort for the most powerful bidder. Christian instantly falls in love with Satine, however the most powerful bidder in the room is non other than the Duke (Richard Roxburgh), who is determined to make Satine his - and his alone. Through a case of mistaken identity, Satine meets Christian (thinking he's the Duke) and offers herself to him. But when she learns the truth, something happens that she did not plan – she falls in love with him. They are interrupted by the eager and jealous Duke, but explain that Christian is writing a play for the Moulin Rouge and Satine is to be the star. As art imitates life on stage, the two forge a secret love that threatens to bring down their beloved Moulin Rouge, and may cost them both their lives.....but the show must go on.
