Baz Luhrmann started in theater but moved into movies with Strictly Ballroom. This film was made just over 20 years ago for $3 million, but became a smash hit in its native Australia earning $21.76 million. At the time, that was the third best box office in Australia for a homegrown hit, behind the first two Crocodile Dundee films. It also did quite well here earning $11.74 million, which is great for a limited release. A few years back, it was given a special edition DVD release, but this week it is coming out on Blu-ray for the first time. Has the film aged well? And is the Blu-ray worth picking up?
