The Great Gatsby

My last post (which was way too  long ago) used an F.Scott Fitzgerald quote - how very fitting that my next post is related to Fitzgerald ...

People often argue that movies are never as good as the books they are based on, and most times I agree…  However, when the vivid imagination of Baz Luhrmann is responsible for the transition of a classic novel into what can only be described as a visual explosion –I’m excited!!

I read the novel as a set work in high school, and thoroughly enjoyed every page. Set in West Egg, Long Island, during the roaring twenties, Nick Carraway gets caught up in the seemingly lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon the sparkle of Gatsby's world fades and madness, and tragedy unfold...

The movie was released this past weekend, I cant wait to see it!!
