In 1899 France, a young writer named Christian (McGregor) defies his bourgeois father, leaves his family home and moves to the seedy, bohemian underworld of Montmartre, Paris. He is taken in by Toulouse-Lautrec (Leguizamo) and his entourage, and is drafted to write a nightclub spectacular. Through his relationship with Toulouse, Christian meets Satine (Kidman), the most beautiful courtesan in Paris and star of the Moulin Rouge nightclub.

  • 5 stars "Weird that people hate it or like it. IT WAS SO GREAT! How wonderfully amazing. If you love music, The Beatles, Elton, Police, or Madonna, treat yourself to this movie. A wonderful twist of awesome. If you don't like the first 5 minutes, you better just leave. I've rewatched this many times and it's a tear jerking wonderland!!! XOXOXO!!! The whole movie is great and no plastic surgery on Kidman is a plus."
  • 1 star "I usually don´t stop watching movies at the beginning even if they are nothing special. But this was so weird and boring at the same time I couldn´t finish it."
