Luhrmann cast and presents the characters are captivating and special in some areas, but breakdown in others. Leonardo DiCaprio seems to fit in Jay Gatsby’s roll really well, showing off his lavish and party-driven lifestyle, symbolizing his American Dream perfectly. Same can be said about Daisy Buchanan.
