Here's a our first official look at Baz Luhrmann's feature film adaptation of the classic novel The Great Gatsby. which stars Leonardo DiCaprio (Jay Gatsby), Carey Mulligan (Daisy), Tobey Maguire (Nick Carraway) and Joel Edgerton (Tom Buchanan). This is such a great cast of young and talented actors, and I'm looking ofrward to seeing how the adaptation turns out.
For those of you not familiar with the story, it follows a 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 ownAmerican 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.
