I’m so excited!! The Great Gatsby is coming back in an upcoming May 2013 3D film! I absolutely LOVE this novel and have been obsessed ever since I read it in elementary school.
The Great Gatsby is a novel by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald. The story takes place in 1922, during the Roaring Twenties, a time of prosperity in the United States after World War I. The book received critical acclaim and is generally considered Fitzgerald’s best work. It is also widely regarded as a “Great American Novel” and a literary classic, capturing the essence of an era. The Modern Library named it the second best English language novel of the 20th century. -Wikipedia
I was always drawn to the handsom and mysterous Jay Gatsby and remember feeling sad about his tragic end. Leonardo DiCaprio will be gracing the screen as Jay and they could not have chosen a better actor for this role!!
Jay Gatsby (originally James Gatz) — a young, mysterious millionaire with shady business connections (later revealed to be a bootlegger), originally from North Dakota. He is obsessed with Daisy Buchanan, whom he had met when he was a young officer stationed in the South during World War I.
Can’t wait to see this! Be sure to check it out this summer.
