It's not difficult to get lured into Luhrmann's lavish Red Curtain movies, linked by a style that reflects the writer-director's interest in stage conventions and storytelling.
In Moulin Rouge, a young Englishman in the Paris of 1899, becomes infatuated with Satine, a singer at the Moulin Rouge. However, she has been promised by the manager to a Duke in return for funding his next production.
In Romeo & Juliet, Luhrmann, updates the classic Shakespearean romantic tragedy to a post-modern Verona Beach where swords are merely a brand of gun and bored youths are easily spurred toward violence.
