The Great Gatsby by Baz Luhrmann

The Great Gatsby directed by Baz Luhrmann in 2013 is one of my favourite movie. With Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton and Isla Fisher.

It's the story of a rich man living on West Egg during the Roaring Twenties. The movie is punctuated of excessive parties, secrets about the past and a love relation between Gatsby and Daisy. All the movie is told by Nick Carraway, Gatsby's  neightbour and friend.

I'm crazy about this movie because it shows a different way of life than ours, like the Speakeasies, the Flappers, Prohibition, Golden Age of Jazz etc... The setting and the costume design are amazing, actors' playing are wonderful and my fascination about the Roaring Twenties increased after I watched this movie ( in fact I think I watched five times... ) Moreover the aestheticism and the film technics are great and numerous.

I advise you to watch it !!!
