The uniquely imaginative Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, Australia) tackles F. Scott Fitzgerald's landmark novel, The Great Gatsby, with blockbuster star Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. Spider-Man's Tobey Maguire stars as the Fitzgerald-like would-be writer Nick Carraway who arrives in New York in 1922, an era of loose morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick encounters the mysterious millionaire Gatsby and his bewitching cousin Daisy. Soon, Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. Bearing witness to this new world, Nick pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and unforgettable tragedy -- mirroring our own times and struggles.

One of my favourite films, very well done. Ive been looking for the novel to read, and even if parts arent the same i still think it was an exceptional film
very well crafted. can't wait to read the book.
I'll always love this movie❤️
Extremely well put together, as great as the book!! The audio tracks fit so perfectly too. Young and Beautiful by Lana was amazing choice. The settings in the movie were on point. WONDERFUL CLASSIC. My all time favourite.
Despite the negative critic reviews, this remains a favourite for me. I will never get tired of watching this film.
Tellement un bon film qui peu faire comprendre des chose c est la perfection!!
Boring movie. DeCaprio is good at the role... But there isn't much to the story.... A real disappointment.
I've wanted to watch this movie for quite some time now and the wait was definitely worth it! This movie is probably one of the classiest and most elegantly done films I've seen in a while, and from someone who read the book, the movie does an amazing job at displaying the true emotion behind the words once read in the book. I highly highly recommend this movie to anyone because it covers many genres from drama to suspense, from action to romance, this movie has it all and for me, it is an instant classic. Very well done, extremely impressed.
Okay, so no movie is going to outdo the book - that's almost certainly a guarantee - but this film is so creatively imagined and the combination of the flashy 20s costumes and fabulous soundtrack produced by Jay-Z make for an exhilarating and thrilling ride. Masterful performances from Leo DiCaprio and Joel Edgerton. The characters and the richness and depth of the production team really bring it to life. Don't listen to the nay-sayers, this is totally worth the purchase!
