This week The Great Gatsby launched in the cinemas – a much awaited film by many who were dying to see F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel come to life. With the wild visionary Baz Luhrmann as the director it was obvious to many that this was going to be a something to look forward to.
The costumes, the art deco, the scenery, everything about the 1920’s comes to life in this movie, an era of losing morals and chasing dreams. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jay Gatsby – a party-giving millionaire – and Toby Maguire plays Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest to live in New York. The movie is full of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and tragedy – just like the novel. Next week we’ll be heading to see the movie, so stay tuned for a review and other inspirational posts.
