A spectacle beyond anything you've ever witnessed. An experience beyond everything you've ever imagined. Behind the red velvet curtain, the ultimate seduction of your senses is about to begin. Welcome to the Moulin Rouge!

Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor sing, dance and scale the heights of passionate abandon in Baz Luhrmanns tantalizing film. The third of Luhrman's Red Curtain trilogy (after Strictly Ballroom and Romeo + Juliet), Moulin Rouge reinvents musical cinema, acknowledging its debt to past masters like Vincente Minnelli and Michael Powell, but taking in the best of rock video along the way.
