The Great Gatsby


The Great Gatsby is a drama film. An adaptation of the book was a tribute to Francis Scott Fitzgerald on the 116th anniversary of his birth. The film was directed by Baz Luhrmann starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton and Elizabeth Debicki. The Great Gatsby was released in 2013 year. In 2014, it was nominated for the two Academy Awards: Best Production Design and Best Costume Design.

It is a simple story about a love triangle of true-to-life characters. Two lovers: Gatsby, a very wealthy owner of an enormous mansion, and Daisy, his beloved but already married woman, carry their love through years of parting. Gatsby’s friend, Nick assists with realizing so long-expected meeting of two lovers. The rendezvous occurs. Gatsby and Daisy delight in spending their time together. Henceforth, they decide to be together and never split up. However, when the key moment comes, Daisy does not bring herself to tell her husband about the intention to break up with him. One evening, driving a car at a fast speed, Daisy knocks down a woman to death. Everybody accuses Gatsby. The story ends trivially: a husband of death woman shoots Gatsby.

On the one hand, the film The Great Gatsby has an impressive classy set and the cast is sensational. Moreover, the camerawork is superb and realistic that you like transfer in the world of brilliance and glory. On the other hand, this film can not be regarded as a memorable one. The plot is not spine-tingling but rather trivial and the music is too modern. It disorients. In addition to that, the ending was dreadfully disappointing.

The Great Gatsby can be thoroughly enjoyable for people who like romantic movies with simple storyline and lively set. I also recommend watching this film for those who are fond of fashion and innovative currents in music industry. They will be totally satisfied with impressive variety of stylish retro clothes and sound effects.

  1. I have heard many about this film, but I haven’t time to watch it. When I saw the trailer, I was astonished at the life of rich people and how easily they wasted money. It’s interesting for me to see how the director embodied the spirit of that time in this film. Also I like the cast. Maybe I will watch ”The Great Gatsby” within the next few days.

  2. I watched this film/ It is a real masterpiece. I have never seen such great transmission of the epoch of that time. May be it is due to modern sound effects and other special effects, but i am sure that this film is worth to be the best))
