The Great Gatsby (2013)

Directed by
Baz Luhrmann

Oscar-nominated adaptation of the classic American novel, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

In the summer of 1922, self-made millionaire Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio) is living across the water from old-money Long Islanders including Ivy League boor Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton) and his Southern belle wife Daisy (Carey Mulligan).

A secretive tycoon with money to burn, Gatsby regularly throws lavish parties at his waterside mansion with the sole purpose of enticing Daisy (with whom he had a wartime romance) to attend. She never has. But all that changes when her stockbroker cousin Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) moves into the cottage next door. With access to both Gatsby and Daisy, Carraway watches with interest as the two embark on an affair that will have devastating repercussions on everyone around them.

It takes a brave man to tackle F Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 classic, but who better than the man who also reworked Romeo and Juliet? Stand upBaz Luhrmann, the visionary director much celebrated for injecting modern cinematic edge into hallowed literary ground.From the off, Gatsby is a glittering wonderland of Roaring Twenties excess and aristocratic confidence; an unapologetic party piece. Polished performances from DiCaprio and Mulligan only serve to add further depth to this glossy blockbuster.
