Storyline

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

"Close to novel"
14 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have just finished reading The Great Gatsby for my English class and I found that this particular movie version portrays the novel very well. It is almost close enough to the book that you could read along with the movie. The narration is done wonderfully and the cast was chosen amazingly. The actors portray the drama of the situations exactly as I, myself saw it in my mind as i read the book. The movie I highly recommend this movie to anyone and everyone, especially those who have read the novel.

Definitely an 8 out of 10 on this wonderful movie. Hardly can you find movies that are just as wonderful as the novel it was based on.
