During this scene we meet Gatsby for the first time, and get a glimpse of him, and we also understand why Nick was invited. Moreover, the reason why this is important is because in the book, it is hard to pick up all these small details, but in the movie everything is in front of your eyes. Some may argue that the book gives a better visual art examples because it has many detail throughout, with many moments of excitement.
