From director/co-writer Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, Romeo + Juliet) comes his uniquely imaginative big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel, The Great Gatsby. The filmmaker's own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story brings the period to life in a way that has never been seen before, starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. The Great Gatsby follows would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire, Spider-Man) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. 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 (Carey Mulligan, An Education), and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). As Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
