The song was produced specifically for this movie and is a story of the rise of Jay Gatsby if the lyrics are properly interpreted. Fitzgerald would have preferred this type of music for this scene as it deepens the real story behind Gatsby and the type of place that they are meeting in, one filled with corruption and crime. There have been several renditions of the novel The Great Gatsby originally created by author F. Scott Fitzgerald, some of the most popular being the 2013 film produced by Baz Luhrmann and the 1974 film by Jack Clayton.

When watching this movie you can see the FItzgerald flare of heightened details

For any book lover, when the movie comes out expectations are already low because it is extremely hard for a director to capture the same experience as written in the book in a much shorter time. There is no exception when discussing the movie “The Great Gatsby”, directed by Baz Luhrmann in 2013. Cinematical decisions concerning the characters, plot, and scenes changed the original vision that author F. Scott Fitzgerald dreamed for his book when it was published in 1925. By specifically analyzing three scenes from the movie and comparing them to the book, it is very clear to see that the movie is not an accurate representation of the classic novel.

The Great Gatsby was a story written by F. Scott Fitzgerald and published in April 10, 1925. Several characters within the novel parallel people in Fitzgerald’s life. Through their portrayal in the book, I believe we can piece together bits of Fitzgerald’s life that he would never openly state.

There are four lead actors, they’re; Leonardo DiCaprio (Jay Gatsby), Tobey Maguire (Nick Carraway), Joel Edgerton (Tom Buchanan) and Carey Mulligan (Daisy Buchanan). The film, ‘The Great Gatsby,’ was released to Australia on the 30th of May, 2013. The overall impression on the film as a general reaction would have to be associated with one emotion which is shock.

The Great Gatsby directed by Baz Luhrmann depicts how a man named Gatsby is lost in the past because of his love for a girl named Daisy. It is an interesting point of view considering the fact that Gatsby is a very wealthy man in the 1920s.
