Set in 1899, this Oscar-nominated musical drama features Ewan McGregor as a young poet who defies his father by moving to the absinthe-soaked, amoral, bohemian Parisian neighborhood of Montmatre. There he meets the diminutive artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (John Leguizamo) and is drafted to write a nightclub spectacular. In this seedy world of sex and drugs, he begins a passionate but ultimately doomed love affair with Paris’ most famous courtesan (Nicole Kidman), lead chorine at the Moulin Rouge. Selected as the best film of 2001 by the National Board of Review.
