Musical Moments – Moulin Rouge!

I have felt inspired to have a musical moment today as I am putting together a post on Jim Broadbent as my excitement is growing to head to see him as Scrooge in A Christmas Carol on 16th December (which will be my last Theatre show of 2015).

For the premiere I was actually standing so close to the red carpet but couldn’t actually see anything. Cate Blanchett is a double Oscar winner, and been nominated three other times if that doesn’t say something about her incredible ability I don’t know what else will? But she really does have a fantastic range of films and she first came to my attention in Lord of the Rings.
