A war veteran finds himself drawn to the past and lifestyle of his millionaire neighbour in The Great Gatsby, released tomorrow (Thursday) at the Showcase in Bargeddie.
In his first film for five years Baz Luhrmann reunites with Leonardo Di Caprio for an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Long Island-set novel.
Set during the Roaring Twenties, an era known for unprecedented economic prosperity, the evolution of jazz music, flapper culture, and bootlegging, midwesterner Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) is lured into the lavish world of his neighbour, Jay Gatsby (Di Caprio).
Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby’s nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await.
The movie, which Luhrmann also co-wrote, features Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Elizabeth Debicki and Isla Fisher .
The Great Gatsby is rated 12A and runs for 143 minutes.
