"The Great Gatsby" abrirá o Festival de Cannes 2013
The Great Gatsby! Having read the book back in high school and liking (not loving) but liking it, the movie did a great job of recreating the story and maintaining the essence of the characters as well as making sure that the symbolism carried on in the book was not lost throughout the film (e.g. the green light). My fave character? Gatsby of course! Played by the handsome Leonardo Dicaprio :) Director Baz Luhrmann's style was perfect for this film and I'd definitely watch this again.
