The Great Gatsby

By DAVID WEINER

August 27, 2013

Leonardo DiCaprio reunites with director Baz Luhrmann for performance fireworks and the pure spectacle of this adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic tale. 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 (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 in this deliciously dark look at Fitzgerald's world that mirrors our own modern times and struggles. Bonus features include deleted scenes and multiple, in-depth making-of featurettes.
