Story


"The Great Gatsby" follows Fitzgerald-like, 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 and bootleg kings. 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 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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..F. Scott Fitzgerald's brilliant distillation of the Jazz Age is still here. You just have to work your way through a heavy filter of special effects and in-your-face bells and whistles to find it..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..the actors are buried in the art direction, along with feeling. The film looks as stiff and lifeless as a posh store window..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..surprisingly satisfying (and text-faithful) as a dramatization of F. Scott's Fitzgerald's classic novel..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
