Moulin Rouge

Talk about anachronistic. Set in the most famous nightclub of turn-of-the-century Paris, “Moulin Rouge” features cancan costumes, period makeup and pop songs from the Beatles, Sting, Elton John, Dolly Parton and David Bowie, among others. But if anyone can make that kind of a construct work, it’s director Baz Luhrmann (“William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet”), who co-wrote “Moulin Rouge” with Craig Pearce. Nicole Kidman plays Satine, the club’s highest-paid star and the city’s most famous courtesan, alongside Ewan McGregor as Christian, a writer who finds himself plunged into a world where fact is more decadent than fiction.
