About the Film
The Great Gatsby follows would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) 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 (Leonardo DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). 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.
It's hard not to like every minute of it
Somehow it feels like the movie was missing, something but I don't know what. It was not perfect, but I liked the feeling of mystery and magic through the movie. You do get the feeling though that it is made from a book though which is a lot deeper than the movie. Even though I have never read the book, it felt like the movie was based on a book but that it hadn't managed to put all the elements of the book properly together. Still it was visually stunning and almost dreamy at times.
This movie is truly a great movie, and a classic. For girls I can say that its better then The notebook. For boys, well they have to see them too;)
