A Baz Luhrmann double bill. 'Moulin Rouge' is a colourful and musical remake of the 1952 film of the same name. Christian (Ewan McGregor) is an aspiring bohemian writer, eking out a living in late 19th century Paris. An unlikely series of events result in him impersonating a Duke at the Moulin Rouge, Paris' most decadent club, and he falls tragically in love with its biggest star, Satine (Nicole Kidman). Events conspire against young love as the film speeds energetically towards its fateful conclusion. Whilst in his 1996 version of 'Romeo and Juliet', Shakespeare's play is transferred to the futuristic urban backdrop of Verona Beach, California. The Montague and Capulet families are embroiled in a long-running feud. When Romeo (Leonardo DiCaprio), a Montague, attends a Capulet ball in disguise, he falls in love with the beautiful Juliet (Claire Danes). Although already engaged to Dave Paris, whom she does not love, Juliet vows to marry Romeo. They ask the kindly Father Laurence (Pete Postlethwaite) to perform the ceremony in secret, but bloodshed and tragedy threaten the couple's future together.

Romeo and Juliet is a wonderful accessable version that remains true to the text, whilst bringing the beloved bard crashing into the 21st Century. Danes shines as Juliet, and while DiCaprio wouldn't have been my choice, i must admit he does well with a challenging role. It accesses the beauty of the text, while the funky soundtrack and sharp imagery allow a sensory journey that will take your breath away.
my only problem with both films, you'll have to buy the soundtracks as well!!
