“Write what you know “was attributed to F. Scott Fitzgerald. As one member of the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s in Paris and the part of the Long Island Gold Coast set, F Scott Fitzgerald certainly followed his own advice and wrote celebrated works.
A fourth adaptation of his well-known “The Great Gatsby” comes to the big screen this year, and this version will be done in 3D. The buzzword is that it will be a hit.
Directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as spoiled Daisy Buchanan, and Tobey Maguire as her cousin, Nick Carraway, the fashion scene has jumped on-board with the Roaring Twenties look.
This version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel "The Great Gatsby" follows would-be writer Nick Carraway played by Tobey Maguire as he leaves the Midwest and comes East in the spring of 1922. He lives in a guest house on the Long Island Gold Coast near the estate of his cousin, Daisy Buchanan. She is married to social conscience and blue-blooded Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton).
An old love of Daisy, who once was penniless and now is rich, resides in an estate near to Daisy. As Jay Gatsby, Leonardo DiCaprio personifies Fitzgerald’s 'Jazz Age,' filled with status conscious, loose morals, partying times and those who amass wealth through bootlegging during this decade.
