Intriguing!
20 December 1998 | by (athens, OH) – See all my reviews

It at times was a little long, but the content was incredible.

I learned a lot about the life of F. Scott Fitzgerald, more than I ever knew about him. The movie was intriguing because his personal life was more interesting than any book someone could have written. Well worth watching.
