Luhrmann on the job: the best of Baz

As Elvis hits cinemas, let's revisit the Australian director's oeuvre and remember what makes him one of the shiniest directors in Hollywood.

The original and, for lots of people, best in Luhrmann’s filmography, Strictly Ballroom gives the bizarre world of the Sydney ballroom scene the big-screen treatment – a romantic-comedy that tells the story of life-long ballroom dancer, and Prince of the ballroom scene Scott (Paul Mercucio) as he trains (and of course falls in love with) the frumpy and blundering Fran (Tara Morice), and eventually transforms her into the Belle of the Ballroom.
