About the Movie
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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's stupefying, it's vulgar, it's demeaning-it's dull and there's nothing like the dullness that is trying to be a sensation.
Fresh: A fan of the Redford/Farrow version, I was prepared to be disappointed. And I was wrong. It may be a bit too much of a wild ride visually. But it gave me a new way of looking at a familiar figure. And there's something pretty great about that.
Fresh: [Gatsby] is a canonical tale given a fresh spin.
Rotten: For all the antic, manic itchiness of his Gatsby, for all the jazz hands, the movie doesn't reach out and grab you.
Waw ! Simply amazing ! I love it ! It's one of my favourites movies now !
IT'S A TRAP!
Don't be fooled by the costumes and party scenes because this movie doesn't delve into the story like it should. The characters were underdeveloped, Toby Maguires acting is atrocious and the word "sport" is used so much that by the end of the movie you want to rip your ears off! Not worth 2hrs of your life or your money.
I read the novel before I watched the movie, and knowing all the details and psychological aspects of the novel, I believe that the movie was brilliantly crafted. Leonardo DiCaprio portrays Gatsby with the perfect balance of vulnerability and arrogance, and the rest of the cast is stellar as well. The perfectly crafted soundtrack only adds to an already awesome movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone!
