Length: 109 minutes
My rating (out of 10):6One 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.
