aileen Posted May 28, 2013 Share Posted May 28, 2013 Has anyone seen this? I saw it yesterday and had mixed feelings about it. I'm trying to remember the 1974 Redford/Farrow version which I've just ordered. This one was quite flashy and was a bit OTT for my taste. I suppose that, as a Brit, I'm used to rather understated, immaculately recreated period pieces. To my surprise, I liked Leonardo di Caprio in the role of Gatsby but wasn't so keen on Carey Mulligan as Daisy. Tobey Maguire's Nick Carraway came across as a bit of a dimwit. I quite liked the modern music superimposed on the period music. The whole film across as less than the sum of its parts and a bit hollow. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
