MOVIE THE GREAT GATSBY - BAZ LUHRMANN - 2012
This third film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic 1925 novel was one of the most hyped movies of the summer of 1974. Leonardo DiCaprio stars as self-made millionaire Jay Gatsby, who uses his vast (and implicitly ill-gotten) fortune to buy his way into Long Island society. Most of all, Gatsby wants to win back the love of socialite Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan), now married to "old money" Tom Buchanan. Calmly observing the passing parade is Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire), Gatsby's best friend, who narrates the film. Baz Luhrmann's screenplay is meticulously faithful to the original novel, but Theoni V. The huge supporting cast includes Howard Da Silva, who played Wilson in the 1949 Great Gatsby, and a very young Patsy Kensit as Daisy's daughter.
