The Great Gatsby
Gone is the romance that was so divine.
The '20s never roared louder than in this sumptuously romantic retelling of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Jazz Age classic. Robert Redford stars as Jay Gatsby, who had once loved beautiful, spoiled Daisy Buchanan (Mia Farrow), then lost her to a rich boy. But now Gatsby is mysteriously wealthy…and ready to risk everything to woo Daisy back. A winner of two Academy Awards, The Great Gatsby features a fine supporting cast and an elegant script by Francis Ford Coppola. And at its centre is the opulent evocation of an era of hot jazz and cold champagne, of women as exotic and demanding as hothouse flowers, and of lives made soft by too much, too soon.
- " '70s adaptation is visually stunning but emotionally distant. " – Andrea Beach
- " One of Redford's best " – Caffeinated Clint
- " Law & Order's Sam Waterston is superb in support " – Lori Hoffman
