Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire), a young man from Minnesota, moves to New York to learn about the bond business. He rents a house in the swanky West Egg district of Long Island. He eventually meets his neighbor Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and gets caught up in his world of extravagant parties and people.
Based on the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, this story deals with the allure of fame and fortune, as well as the unbreakable bond of first love.
lol Seriously there was really nothing great about this 'Gatsby' dude. I think I wasted my $10 on this film. It's a film that should be be seen on Netflix or cable tv. Just sick and tired of these repetitive Hollywood films, that more or less have the same plot like films released in the past.
All I am saying is that there absolutely nothing unique or original about this film. Just the same typical American decadence.. blah boring. Enough said.
Incredibly well done. I could done have without daisy's husband's accent though. His accent sounded so phony! Also, yes the sound tract and a few songs Didn't go with the era of the times! I was very pleased with your choice of actors.
i agree with the music critique, music did not make any sense. with be way better to captivate 1920ties. director learn from Cameron !I still like it by hey, not the best1 original way better.
