SAN DIEGO – “Moulin Rouge,” voted No. 1 in a survey of movies that FilmOut festival audiences wanted most to see, will be screened at 7 pm Wednesday, Feb. 20, at Birch North Park Theater.
The 2001 musical stars Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor and John Leguizamo in a lavish production set in the Montmarte Quarter of Paris, famous for its bawdy nightlife.
The film, directed by Baz Luhrmann and written by Lurhrmann and Craig Pearce, was nominated for eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actress (Kidman). It won only two Oscars: Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design.
