Gatsby

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?
