Love a good story, great performances and a fabulous soundtrack to boot? Well then there is no excuse to miss viewing The Great Gatsby in theaters this weekend as it opens on Friday, May 10th. There is not just one actor who provides a great performance, but the entire cast and that is rare to see in a film today.
It is not just Leo DiCaprio (J. Edgar, Aviator) as Jay Gatsby, but Oscar® nominated Carey Mulligan (An Education) as Daisy Buchanan who have electrifying energy together, but Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway; Joel Edgerton as Tom Buchanan; Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke as Myrtle and George Wilson; and Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker, Daisy’s friend; and Amitabh Bachchan as Meyer Wolfsheim.
As for the costumes, they are to die for, but then with viewing the trailer for the film, it is a highly anticipated aspect of this film, as well as the music that brings a modern spin to the world of jazz from decades gone by. FABulous for sure, especially with the collaboration between JAY Z, director Baz Luhrmann and composer Craig Armstrong.
The film is in 3D and at first I did not think it would contribute to the film, but it is a spectacular view with all the lavishness of the era that is best seen on the big screen. Do not miss it!
