The Great Gatsby
It was my privilege to attend an advance screening last night and I LOVED it. Two thumbs up. The images from my mind played out so true on the screen. The costuming was opulent - I wanted to watch the first half in slow motion.
Leonardo DiCaprio was exquisite as Gatsby - playing out such a range of emotions with his usual gift.
I was very impressed with this newest tribute to such a classic story. I hope you love it as much as I did.
It will be interesting when I re-read this book (a bookray) if I still like the book as much, and what I think of Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby, when I eventually see this movie. Do I still need Gatsby to be tall and dark haired?
The actors are good, Isla Fisher plays the mistress and is wonderful, and Leonardo was a wonderful Gatsby. I guess there is always the hope of a happy ending, instead of the tragedy that you know is coming.
