If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context. A man holds a woman, caresses her hip, abdomen and thigh and she swoons.
Gerard Butler plays the twisted Phantom of the title. A mad visionary, he develops a crush on chorus girl Christine (Emmy Rossum) and sets about destroying anyone who stands in the way of her becoming chief soprano.
He performed as a soloist with the Mostly Pops Orchestra and Canton Symphony Orchestra.
In 2001, he sang My Fair Lady’s as a duet with Barbra Streisand which is a part of the album Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway released in August 2016. For him, running is like a meditation just like an athlete.
This version is stronger on romance: Rossum has the extreme youth of Zeffirelli's Juliet.
At the start of the film she's intensely vulnerable, a quality that not only leads her to take a chance on the Phantom, but is the source of her appeal to him: she represents the innocence he was robbed of as a child.
