The Great Gatsby - Baz Luhrmann
with Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, Isla Fisher. 143 mins + trailers.
I’ve never waited for permission to do anything. People just say, ‘He’s a bit crazy, but let’s give it a go.’
Join us for a mini-season of three of Luhrmann's best loved films, fusing story-telling with pop culture in glorious technicolor:
William Shakespeare’s Romeo +Juliet “Luhrmann's adaptation refuses to age”
The Great Gatsby, “a wayward, lavishly theatrical celebration”
Moulin Rouge! "a jukebox musical romantic drama"
Baz Luhrmann directs a star studded cast in this extravagant, eclectically sound-tracked adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic 1925 novel. Set at the height of the roaring 20’s amongst east coast aristocrats, Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire), a Midwesterner now living on Long Island, finds himself fascinated by his mysterious millionaire neighbour, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio). Slowly drawn into Gatsby's circle – which includes the exquisitely beautiful Daisy (Carey Mulligan) – Nick bears witness to the decadence and tragedy of the age, in what becomes a cautionary tale of the American Dream.
