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). So I have decided to celebrate two of his fantastic musical moments in Moulin Rouge!

The Show Must Go On – a rather serious moment which sums up exactly what they all must do!

7 Incredible Films in Paris

With the absolutely horrendous and tragic events that happened in Paris over the weekend I thought I would put some focus on 7 incredible films (some of them all time favourites of mine) which are set or have a very big link to Paris in the film.
