Leonardo DiCaprio

The Great Gatsby

16 May, 2013

DiCaprio plays Jay Gatsby in this film of the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald, directed by Baz Luhrmann. After attending one of Gatsby’s legendary parties, Nick is asked by Gatsby to arrange a meeting with his cousin, and true love, Daisy, who is now married to the brutish and philandering Tom Buchanan, Co-starring Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton.

I remember reading the book in high school and always thinking of Gatsby as this strong, stoic, suave, mysterious man who had everything under control. But when I read it as an adult I realised he is a hollow man, a shell of a person trying to find meaning, who is not completely in touch with reality.
