Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman join forces with visionary director Baz Luhrmann in Australia, an epic and romantic action adventure set on the brink of World War II. When an English aristocrat (Nicole Kidman) travels to this faraway continent, she meets rough-hewn cattle driver (Hugh Jackman) and an enchanting Aboriginal child (Brandon Walters). This unlikely trio joins forces and embarks on a transforming journey, driving a herd of cattle across hundreds of miles of the world’s most beautiful, yet unforgiving terrain. When their world is torn apart by powerful enemies, they must try to find each other amidst the bombing of the city of Darwin by the Japanese forces that attached Pearl Harbour.
Oscar winner Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, Jim Broadbent and John Leguizamo head an internationally renowned cast in this musical extravaganza. Baz Luhrmann’s sensual reinvention of the movie musical was nominated for eight Academy Awards including Best Picture. Set in a Paris nightclub that caters to society’s decadent elite, the exhilarating Moulin Rouge! follows the story of the ill-fated love affair between a stunning courtesan (Kidman) and a struggling young writer (McGregor).
