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.
the great gatsby (2013) - baz luhrmann synopsis will be updates..
I had to read this my 11th grade year. After reading the book,I rented this to get a good visual. This put the book in a whole new perspective. It is rare for me to say the movie is better than the book. But this is the one exception this movie is 10 times better than the book.
This is a great movie!! Amazing cast! It did justice to the book! A must see!
I adore the novel as well as the story! Also, look me in the eyes and try to tell me Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t a babe :)
Loved the book, the movie, and soundtrack! The ending always makes me cry no matter how many times I watch it
MY FAVORITE MOVIE.
The soundtrack? Spectacular. The movie? Beautiful. The overall enjoyment? Priceless.
The first one I saw this in 2013 I wasn’t crazy about it but after seeing it earlier this year I have quickly heck me obsessed . The music choice isn’t exactly 1920’s but it’s fun . I love the plot and Leo in this movie . It’s worth it 💕
"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... and one fine morning— So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past." - Nick Carraway (Narrator of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby") An amazing story about money, power, obsession, and tragedy. Fitzgerald's Jay Gatsby, or James Gatz, teaches us about the craziness in love and light—that having hope is something worth dying for.
Really good movie, I was afraid it was going to be a bomb but it was excellent.
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!
