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.

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.
Not sure what the thinking is on that one..
