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

Unfortunate attempt at a classic.
22 June 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The problem, other than the casting the script and the music, is that

A&E doesn't have the budget to support their appetite, so this film ends

up looking like a bus and truck company of "The Boyfriend". Costumes

don't fit, the sets look cheap, and whole scenes plod by without a

closeup. Poorly shot, stiffly acted, read the book instead. The one

exception- Francie Swift as Jordan, who somehow rises above the murk to

spice up every scene she's in.
