A cinematic masterpiece, and one of the few 21st century movies to have such an enormous all-star casting, impeccable scripting, a production timeframe that neared 2 years etc. etc.
I am in an absolute tizzy waiting for The Great Gatsby‘s release.
It deals, as always, with ‘The American Dream”, love, greed, social convention, lies, deceit, danger, mischief managed, hardships and the ultimate triumphs. Leonardo DiCaprio plays the central protagonist who is, in the truest sense, an epic hero of sorts. His hamartia manifesting in the form of Daisy and all he covets in and around her.
Anyway, I do hope you guys take the time to re-read the book and watch the movie.
I feel that people need to acknowledge Mary-Kate Olsen and her large contribution to this movie. She donated her collection of period pieces to the movie to add to the authenticity of the character Daisy’s wardrobe.
It will be the cherry on top of an already scrumptious cake top.
