Spling’s Galileo Pick of the Week: Moulin Rouge

Moulin Rouge @ Alphen Boutique Hotel (29 Dec)

Baz Luhrmann is the visionary director, who brought us Strictly Ballroom, Romeo & Juliet, Australia and The Sunscreen Song. Always bold, entertaining and visually ambitious, he’s plied his craft to Moulin Rouge, in a sumptuous tale about a poet, who falls madly in love with a much coveted Parisian courtesan. 

Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor star in this grandiose and spectacular musical romance drama, delivering starry-eyed performances in a knowingly lavish, over-the-top and indulgent musical. Artful, even if garish at times, the emotional core of Moulin Rouge keeps this outlandish and original tale moving and within reach.  

This over-the-top musical romance drama is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
