About The Great Gatsby (2013)
A dazzling literary adaptation from the director of Moulin Rouge. In 1922 Yale graduate and war veteran Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) moves into a small house on Long Island. He notices that his neighbour, the mysterious Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), throws raucous, legendary all-night parties at his mansion and Nick wonders about the bright young things who frequent them. He is drawn into this exciting world when he makes Gatsby's acquaintance; despite their social differences, Gatsby feels a connection to Nick. They are joined in their social whirlwind by Nick's lively, shallow cousin Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her brutish husband Tom (Joel Edgerton). But the couple are keeping secrets from each other and Nick learns that Gatsby has hidden reasons for wanting to make a name for himself.
