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

Goofs

Quotes

Owl Eyes: What do you think?
Jordan Baker: About what?
Owl Eyes: About THAT.
Jordan Baker: Books?
Owl Eyes: They're real. Here. Let me show you. They have pages in them. See? A bonafide piece of printed matter. It fooled me. I've been drunk for about a week and I thought a library would sober me up.
Jordan Baker: Did it help?
Owl Eyes: I can't tell you. I've only been here an hour.

Tepid at best
15 January 2001 | by pghmoeSee all my reviews

I've always thought Robert Redfords' Gatsby was a little wooden, but I could deal with it, because Mia Farrows Daisy was not. My opinion of Coppolas' adaptation has been dramatically elevated after "watching" A&E's snooze-fest last night. The acting was tepid, even by performers whom I usually like very much. (Paul Rudd, Mira Sorvino, Martin Donovan - although he never seems to change much). The flash-backs were un-needed, and at times insufferable. . (I don't need to actually see Gatsby & Daisy "doing it" to get the idea they were once linked.) And the pacing was an even keeled blur, building all the tension of watching spaghetti cook. And I have a big problem with the Gatsby who would build an empire to win over Mira Sorvinos drab Daisy Buchanan. No wonder Tom sought his pleasure elsewhere. I will too, in Coppolas tense and watchable piece of art.
