Baz Luhrmann Collection
AUSTRALIA: Australia is an epic and romantic action adventure, set in this country on the explosive brink of World War II. In it, Lady Sarah Ashley, an English Aristocrat (Nicole Kidman) travels to the faraway continent where she has inherited a cattle ranch, owned by her late husband. When Australian cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn local known as The Drover (Hugh Jackman). When tragedy strikes and Lady Sarah becomes unofficial guardian to an enchanting mixed-race Aboriginal child (Brandon Walters), this unlikely trio join forces to save the land she inherited and embark upon a transforming journey driving 2,000 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the world’s most beautiful yet unforgiving terrain, only to face the bombing of the city of Darwin by the Japanese forces that attacked Pearl Harbour. With his new film, director Baz Luhrmann is painting on a vast canvas, creating a cinematic experience that brings together romance, drama, adventure and spectacle.
MOULIN ROUGE: Moulin Rouge is a celebration of truth, beauty, freedom, but above all things love – set in the infamous, gaudy and glamorous Paris nightclub, circa 1900.

Satine (Nicole Kidman) the star of the Moulin Rouge and the city’s most famous courtesan is caught between the love of a young writer and another man’s obsession.

Prepare to enter a world where nothing is forbidden and everything is possible….
