In 1899 France, a young writer named Christian (McGregor) defies his
bourgeois father, leaves his family home and moves to the seedy, bohemian
underworld of Montmartre, Paris. He is taken in by Toulouse-Lautrec (Leguizamo) and his
entourage, and is drafted to write a nightclub spectacular. Through his
relationship with Toulouse, Christian meets Satine (Kidman), the most
beautiful courtesan in Paris and star of the Moulin Rouge nightclub.
He and Satine enter into a passionate but doomed love affair.
This musical features original songs by David Bowie, Craig Armstrong,
Marius De Vries and Steve Hitchcock.
