The two films, A Midnight in Paris and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott, share many similarities in the sense that Gil is much alike to Nick Caraway, how they see everything happen and try to innovate the situation, but are not successfully and then in a way give up. Two men that resemble each other are Gil and Gatsby, in the sense that he is passionate and has hope for many things, although he is different because Gil already has a fiancé and neither do Gatsby or Nick have a woman and Gil is not trying to steal someone’s wife. Although, Pablo is trying to take his, so that is, a similarity someone’s wife is still being taken away from their husband, although no one gets run over or shot in a pool, Midnight In Paris still shares many similarities with The Great Gatsby. The music is for each era they go through, it goes from jazz to calm, relaxing band music to wild dance parties and the music is proper; there is no modern music when in the “Golden Age”. The scenes in the movie also resemble the book, when Gil tells Inez that he does not want to be with her anymore her parents break in and they never actually approved of him as Daisy’s parents never approved of Gatsby to be with their daughter and he ends up never being with her.
While Jay Gatsby was praised by Fitzgerald and other characters throughout the Great Gatsby only his success separates him from anyone else with a dream and self-discipline. Fitzgerald utilizes Nick Carraway in setting Gatsby on an elusive pedestal. Throughout the book Nick narrates his view of his curious neighbor and the honorable qualities he perceives in him. His reputation for lavish parties and insurmountable wealth further his climb into seemingly impassable righteousness as characters throughout the book fawn over Gatsby’s boisterous parties. His polished variant of his life story only builds the argument that he is indeed great.
The films “The Great Gatsby” as well as “Midnight in Paris” were directed to portray the vibe the directors wanted to carry all throughout the films with characters and music, taking inspiration from the novel “The great Gatsby”. The “midnight in Paris” took inspiration from the great Gatsby to help bring the film alive as well as the characters, which were involved, in it. Both films as well as the novel portrayed a loving couple that did anything to be together but at the end of the day, not all the trouble the characters went through to be together was enough. One of the major conflicts that the films seemed to have were that the main characters always living in the past instead of living in the present, which was their mistake. Living in the past was a huge mistake that the character has seemed in encounter, in their head they always thought of what it could have been and what it would have been, which brought many problems on the way.
In my opinion, The Great Gatsby's characters definitely have many similarities to the real people in F. Fitzgerald's life. "He spoke as if Daisy's reaction was the only thing that mattered" (Fitzgerald 143). Jay Gatsby spoke these words to Daisy in F. Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby. In F. Scott Fitzgerald's real life, he was married to a woman named Zelda. Fitzgerald described Zelda by saying this, "I love her, and that's the beginning and the end of everything" (By F. Scott Fitzgerald).
The 2013 film version was full of flashbacks of the past while Nick Carraway narrated the story of The Great Gatsby to his psychiatrist. The setting in this new movie was somewhat in the period of the 1920’s. However, the music, the behavior, and the costumes made the movie look too modern for the 1920’s. The new movie was somewhat like the book, but there were some events that were skipped or were not included. What I liked about the movie was that the graphics were much better than the old the movie.
The Great Gatsby is one of F. Scott Fitzgerald's most iconic books. This story shows life in the 1920s, at the peak of the economic boom. It’s about the main character, also the narrator, meeting and befriending his neighbor named Gatsby. He becomes one of Gatsby’s closest friends, meeting Daisy, Jordan, Tom, and others. The book became so popular it was turned into a movie.
The Great Gatsby One of the most interesting American Novel of love, tragedy, social, and mystery life story written by F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1925. It was narrated by Nick Carraway who was from Minnesota a graduate from Yale University, a WW1 vet and who moved to west Egg the part of long Island joining the luxurious life of h Mr. Tom with his wife Daisy (Nick cousin) and Gatsby the mysterious tycoon. However, the fiction consists various characters with different background and lifestyle. To mention few main characters, Tom from Rich family, Gatsby claimed that he was from rich family but later it was cleared by him (Gatsby) he was from poor family, Jordan Baker the golfer woman in 1920s who was famous whom Nick claimed to have seen her, Gorge Wilson the Garage owner and his wife myrtle the side chick of Tom Buchanan who dreamt to have high social class of living standard by her treacherous life. In Great Gatsby, Nick introduced Tom “Her husband, among various physical accomplishments, had been one of the most powerful ends that ever-played football at New Haven — a national figure in a way, one of those men who reach such an acute limited excellence at twenty-one that everything afterward savors of anti-climax.
Gatsby always has colossal blowouts and they happen so often and are so sizable that people from all over New York show up. The book, portrays Gatsby’s party as this amazing, breath-taking scene with people all over the place and dancing and drinking, while the first movie is bland and doesn’t show how eccentric the first party is. The second movie, however, is bright, bold, eye-catching, and reels you in. While both movies left out the scene from the library, the second one makes a quick reference to it. Also, in the 1997 version of the movie, Gatsby summons Nick to a room to meet him, while that’s not the case in the book.
The Great Gatsby is a book written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The story follows Nick, the protagonist, as he moves to New York City and starts his new life there. Throughout the book, the reader meets an abundance of horrible characters like Daisy, a self-absorbed and careless beauty, Tom, a brutal and unmoral man, and Gatsby, an ignorant and mysterious fool who wasted his life chasing a hopeless dream. Baz Luhrmann and Woody Allen are just two people of many who have recreated The Great Gatsby or dedicated a homage to it, both proving effective representations of the film. A director named Baz Luhrmann turned The Great Gatsby into a film.
At last, Gil decides to stay in the future and confront the reality. The characters, the themes and the scenes show effectiveness of the films that represent the novel of the Great Gatsby. The Great Gatsby was precisely effective throughout the film through the characters, the themes and the scenes. Baz Luhrmann’s cast selection was excellent and extremely brought the movie to life, and still adapted to the novel. Leonardo DiCaprio and other star characters made the novel come straight to life and they all acted sensationally well, from the star to the background people.
