The Great Gatsby

By DAVID WEINER

March 31, 2013

Release Date: May 10

The Plot: Wannabe writer named Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) heads to New York in search of the American Dream in 1922, ending up next door to mysterious, party-giving millionaire Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) across the bay from his cousin Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering husband Tom (Joel Edgarton). Soon, Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, along with their illusions, loves and deceits.

Why It's a Must-See: Anticipation has been building for quite some time as the release date for this adaptation was pushed back from last year. Springing from the imaginative mind of Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge), F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic tale of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings arrives with a brand-new, opulent-looking adaptation, promising a deliciously darker look at Fitzgerald's world that mirrors our own modern times and struggles.
