Moulin Rouge! (2001)



Moulin Rouge! is a beautifully made pastiche-jukebox musical full of romance, drama, and intrigue. The movie is set in 1899 and follows a young writer who moves to Paris to join the Bohemian revolution, falling in love with the star courtesan from the Moulin Rouge.

Being a jukebox musical, the film uses popular songs and features music from The Sound of Music, Elton John, and Nirvana, as part of a score that has something for everyone. Directed by Baz Luhrmann, this fast-paced number has everything you could want and more.
