The Great Gatsby

Set in the 1920’s The Great Gatsby tells the tale of a Midwest native Nick Carraway. Carraway moves to New York to be a writer. He sets up next to millionaire Jay Gatsby played by Leonardo DiCaprio and across the bay from his cousin Daisy and her controlling husband Tom. Living next to a millionaire has its perks. After being invited to a couple of Gatsby’s legendary parties Nick has had a taste of the good life and it leaves him wanting more. A love triangle between Gatsby, Daisy and her husband is the main story in this film and things go from bad to worse when someone ends up dead. This movie is very charming. Getting a look back at how the worlds elite lived in the early twenties makes us all wish that would of been our lives, but sadly it is not. Thankfully we have great producers, directors and actors to transport us into different times even if it is only for a few hours.
