The Great Gatsby

Lurid Australian director Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!) yanks the curtain back on his Jazz Age Disneyland version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novella. Tobey Maguire is the World War I vet who gets lured into the fabulous lifestyle of his nouveau riche Long Island neighbor, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio). Carey Mulligan (An Education, Drive) is the contentious object of affection, Daisy Buchanan. Throw in some fantabulous fashions and an explosive soundtrack (Beyoncé, Jay Z, Lana Del Rey, Florence and the Machine, Jack White, will.i.am) and you've got one hell of a party. The pure over-the-topness of it all makes it hard to take the characters seriously, but Luhrmann's manic razzle dazzle ultimately fits the narrative quite snugly. 142 minutes PG-13.
