Chosen by David W., floor staff! DCP projection

“Another post-modern mix of myth, musical, comedy, romance and unfettered pastiche from the impressively inventive Luhrmann, here ransacking pop culture’s iconographic archives – rather than the real Paris of 1900 – to mount a hyperkinetic update of the Orpheus myth. Naive, lovelorn writer/composer Christian (McGregor) is taken up by bohemians like Toulouse-Lautrec to put on a show at the scandalous showplace of the title, where courtesan/torch singer Satine (Kidman) will do anything – even sleep with a dodgy Duke – to further her acting career, especially if pressed by the club proprietor (Broadbent) – until, that is, she meets Christian, and her heart melts. A Red Shoes-style fable of love and art in conflict with commerce and power, it’s luridly stunning to look at.” – Time Out (London)
