Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby has now been released in theaters. The movie is starred by big stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Isla Fisher, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton and so much more.
The film that was originally planned to be filmed in New York, where the actual novel is set, was moved and filmed in Australia. The film is extra special because it was released in 3D format.
People who have seen the movie has given mixed reviews. Fitzgerald’s granddaughter herself praised the movie saying the style and music is great. The popular movie review website, Rotten Tomatoes, gave the movie 50%. This was out of 213 professional critic’s reviews. Most say that Luhrmann prioritzed visuals more than the story line itself. Making the movie nice in the eyes, but lacks the heart.
