When an idealistic poet (Ewan McGregor) is drawn into the dark, fantastical underworld of the Parisian nightclub the “Moulin Rouge,” he finds a seedy, glamorous haven of sex, drugs and electricity. He also finds himself plunged into a passionate love affair with the club's star, who is also the city's most famous courtesan (Nicole Kidman) in this tragic love story from filmmaker Baz Luhrmann.

Critics Consensus: A love-it-or-hate-it experience, Moulin Rouge is all style, all giddy, over-the-top spectacle. But it's also daring in its vision and wildly original.

Dazzling musical romance has innuendo, mature themes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Moulin Rouge is the 2001 bombastic remake of the 1952 movie. Although the film, on paper, sounds a bit too mature for even teens (seduction and obfuscation are employed to raise money for a club), it's really quite a tender love story -- though there is plenty of sexual innuendo -- and a sweet message about the power of love. Characters frequently drink absinthe as well as various types of alcohol. There are references to prostitution. One of the characters is referred to in a disparaging manner as "the Jew." Overall, this is a hate-it-or-love-it movie: Where some see endless self-indulgence and ostentation, others see nonstop vivid entertainment of the kind guaranteed to make viewers temporarily forget the drab realities of day-to-day life.
