The Great Gatsby is a film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton. The film is directed by Buz Luhrmann, who also wrote the screenplay along with Craig Pearce.
The movie tells the story of Nick Carraway and how he is enchanted by the existence of his neighbor Jay Gatsby (played by DiCaprio). However, he soon finds out that things are not what they seem, and that beneath the gold and glitter lies tragedy and obsession. If you enjoy free movie streaming then you probably know this isn’t the first adaptation of Fitzgerald’s work, but it’s one of the best, as Luhrmann has decided to stick closely with the themes in the book.
The Great Gatsby is not a perfect film, and the narrative structure could have been improved, and the music could have been better too. Even so, this is still something you should see.
