The Great Gatsby

May 11, 2013

An energetic, visual delight. The Great Gatsby Grade: B+ Director: Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge) Screenplay: Luhrmann, Craig Pearce (Strictly Ballroom) Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic), Tobey Maguire (Spiderman) Rating: PG-13 Runtime: 143 min. by John DeSando “The most hopeful man I ever knew.” Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) I refuse to enter into the fray about the comparison between F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and any film adaptation. Both are different ways of telling the story and should be discussed on their own merits.
