It’s dazzling, it’s roaring, “The Great Gatsby” is finally here. It’s a story of man with an extraordinary gift for hope. Based on the beloved classic by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Jay Gatsby, a rich and powerful man who loves spinning tales. He self-mythologizes by telling tall tales – is he a war hero? A rich orphan? What Gatsby is, is an enigma. And what makes him great is his undying love for Daisy, played by Carey Mulligan. Tobey Maguire (Nick Carraway), Joel Edgerton (Tom Buchanan), and Isla Fisher (Myrtle Wilson) co-star from director Baz Luhrmann (“Moulin Rouge,” “Romeo + Juliet”).
But the big question – is the movie great? Check out my review of “The Great Gatsby.”
