From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby. The filmmaker created his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before in a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. The Great Gatsby follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922 an era of loosening morals glittering jazz bootleg kings and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream Nick lands next door to a mysterious party-giving millionaire Jay Gatsby and across the bay from his cousin Daisy and her philandering blue-blooded husband Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich their illusions loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness within and without of the world he inhabits he pens a tale of impossible love incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
