The Great Gatsby is a 2013 Australian-American drama, an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel of the same name. The film was co-written and directed by Baz Luhrmann.
Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922. 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 of 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.
Blu-ray + Ultraviolet.
The Great Gatsby Reviews
“Lurhmann's take on Gatsby is dazzlingly beautiful, dizzyingly fast-paced, and may, like the novel, grow to be more appreciated with time.” IGN
“Fitzgerald would have loved this film. First Luhrmann immerses you in Gatsby's world, then propels you along a journey pitted with poignant moments of loss, regret, longing and, as Nick repeatedly states, hope…Visually, the film is the fast-moving, pastel-coloured cinematic mural you'd expect, a style that has become so synonymous with Luhrmann's brand. When it comes to filling a screen with noisy spectacle, Luhrmann has few peers. He's like a sensible version of Terry Gilliam…What's truly telling about this brash, boisterous adaptation is that the director clearly understands the spirit of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel better than most film critics.” 3AW
“A stunning recreation of 1920's New York that sticks as close to its source material as it can while delivering an engaging adaptation.” Cinema Sight
“Luhrmann's Great Gatsby might not find favour with all Fitzgerald purists but it plunges you wholeheartedly into an age of bathtub gin, flirty flappers and impending doom and burns with a fierce intensity.” Daily Express
“Finally – Leo smiles! And brings layers of resonance to lurid Baz Luhrmann’s madcap assault on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s glittering prize…” Sight & Sound
The picture is a seemingly impossible success: a beautiful, entertaining, tragic, well-paced, and perhaps most shockingly, reverent adaptation of what any sane person might well have labeled an unfilmable story." TV Guide
The best thing about Baz Luhrmann's much-anticipated/much-dreaded The Great Gatsby is that, for all its computer-generated whoosh and overbroad acting, it is unmistakably F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. That is no small deal." New York Magazine
“Luhrmann understands Fitzgerald's book and brings the writer's classic prose to life on cinematic terms that feel thrilling, visceral and immediate.” Filmink
“There's never been a movie like it. Hollywood just doesn't make dramas in 3D but this one is truly sensational. Di Caprio delivers one of his best performances.” Movieline
