I love The Great Gatsby. The ideas, themes, the historical context for a story of love, power and loss. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel is classic tale of the American Dream. But Baz Luhrmann’s treatment of this special text was engaging but not special.  Fitzgerald’s novel builds character, affinity and form – slowly and gently. And by the end it is very special…… Sometimes the film betrays the book. And in this case, Luhrmann’s film failed to deliver.What did you think?
