SYNOPSIS

"The Great Gatsby" follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.

I'm also a big Leo fan, but for me, Toby made the movie - Leo did a fantastic job as well. The whole movie was very well done, and my wife says it's her favorite movie in a very long time. I know there are mixed reviews on the film, but I certainly look forward to watching it again. The soundtrack song, "Together" by "The XX" is played several times, and for me was quite addictive.
