Nicole Kidman is marking the 20th anniversary of the musical, Moulin Rouge!, on Instagram with photos from the film and artwork from fans.
Moulin Rouge! has turned 20 years old, and Nicole Kidman took to Instagram to celebrate the occasion with throwback photos and fan art. The 2021 musical romantic drama is set in Paris and takes place slightly more than a century before the film’s release. It stars Kidman as Satine, a cabaret actress and courtesan, alongside Ewan McGregor as Christian, an English poet. The two characters meet and begin a complicated and ultimately tragic love story.
Moulin Rouge! is equally known for its music as its love story. The film put its own spin on iconic songs, such as Elton John’s “Your Song” and Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Christina Aguilera, Mýa, P!NK, and Lil’ Kim recorded their own version of Labelle’s “Lady Marmalade” for the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack. The Moulin Rouge! version of the song won a Grammy for Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals. The film also took home some hardware at the Oscars for Best Art Direction-Set Decoration and Best Costume Design. Although Kidman didn’t win an Oscar for her performance as Satine, she did receive a Best Actress nomination.
