Storyline

Nick Carraway moves from the Midwest to New York a bond salesman and finds himself the neighbor of Jay Gatsby. He's a wealthy bootlegger and forger, who has a huge estate bordering his modest cottage. Gatsby is well-known for throwing fabulous, hedonistic summer parties in 1922 West Egg, Long Island. Gatsby befriends Nick and enlists him in to broker a meeting between him and his former love Daisy Buchanen, Nick's cousin. She is now married to the snobbish and selfish Tom Buchanen, who flaunts an extramarital affair he is having with the proletarian wife of a local garage owner. Nick consents to arrange a meeting with Gatsby and Daisy, a rendezvous that will have tragic consequences. Written by duke1029@aol.com

EXCELLENT book adaptation
6 November 2002 | by (Lancaster, England) – See all my reviews

Just viewed this tonight at an English Lit Society event.

This is a seamless adaptation of the book which is considered by many to be the Great American Novel. Much of the narration from the text is used, helping to create the feeling of being an outsider looking in, just as the narrator and main character himself does.

Most of the scenes are clearly taken straight from the book's pages. The actors remain in character, and the plot is not toyed with or distorted. The movie may be daunting to someone who has not read the book, but lovers of the book are very likely to enjoy it.

My only small objections were that Gatsby seemed too old and his wide half-smile was a bit creepy, but that's neither here nor there.

Two thumbs way way up! Where can I buy a copy?
