Warning: Display title "The <i>Red Curtain</i> Trilogy" overrides earlier display title "<i>The Red Curtain Trilogy</i>". The Red Curtain Trilogy is the title given to the first three films directed by Baz Luhrmann:

These three films were included in a "Red Curtain Trilogy" DVD box set released in 2002.[1] The films do not form a trilogy in the traditional sense, as there is no relationship between the plot of each film. Instead, the Red Curtain Trilogy has been described by Luhrmann as following a specific filmmaking technique.[2] Each film contains a theatre motif that reappears throughout the film.

  • Strictly Ballroom (94 minutes) – $11,738,022[3] (Budget: A$3 million)[4]
