The Great Gatsby

If you are looking for a film that will:be romantic,theatrical and expressive

Length: 109 minutes
My rating (out of 10):6
One word description: Utopian

Overview:  A story of Nick (Tobey Maguire ) a Midwestern war veteran who reflects on his life metamorphosis after moving to a township outside Manhattan and meeting a wealthy and mysterious Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio)  who leads an extravagant life overfilled with power, fame and grand parties.

Sum-Up of What to Expect:
  • Great performances from well known actors including Isla Fisher,Joel Edgerton,Adelaide Clemens and Elizabeth Debicki.
  • An old style romance
  • Beautiful and carefully designed scenography and costumes
  • Scenes full of theatrical and over dramatic execution which sometimes make the story quite irritating and dull.
  • Admirable soundtracks from artists such as Lane Del Rey, Kanye West & Jay Z  and Beyonce which suit perfectly the mood and style to the film adding a modern twist

 Here's the trailer:

Songs from the film worth listening to:


 Conclusion: An artistic and picturesque adaptation of the first published in 1952 novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald which lacks a thrilling storyline but contains exceptional scenography ,costumes and music which will bring you into the extravagant world of Gatsby.


Would I watch it again? Probably not
