An adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Long Island-set novel, where Midwesterner Nick Carraway is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby's nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await.
Rated PG-13 for some violent images, sexual content, smoking, partying and brief language
Shimmying Off the Literary Mantle
In detail and dialogue “The Great Gatsby” largely adheres faithfully to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, but Baz Luhrmann has colored it lavishly with his feel for the era.
