The Great Gatsby

Description

The Great Gatsby is the sixth adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel scheduled to release in December, 2012. As the previous movies, this one is loosely based on the book without any substantial deviations from the plot. However, unlike the previous movies Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby was mostly filmed in Sydney, Australia not in New York where the original Fitzgerald's novel action takes place. And if you haven't even read the book you should be certainly ensured that this movie is definitely worth your time. Just one short look on the stellar cast will tell you lots about how seriously the movie's creators approached to the business. Leonardo DiCaprio plays the central person of the screenplay Jay Gatsby, a millionaire whose "shady" fortune made the penniless man rich in several years. A love drama is hidden underneath of his maniacal lust for roaring parties he regularly organizes in his mansion, which he appears to purchase just because his "love of the whole life" lives nearby this place. She is portrayed by Carey Mulligan, Daisy met Jay Gatsby when he was poor, and successfully forgotten him after he has gone to War. Soon she has married Tom Buchanan (played by Joel Edgerton) and become Daisy Buchanan. Her husband Tom, as it turned out, has a mistress: Myrtle Wilson (Isla Fisher) and their relationships are moving very precipitously. Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) is the person who observes the ups and downs of this twisted love triangle and finally becomes the lonesome witness of the mournful finale of the story.

Drama
The dramatic storyline of "People Like Us" tells us about unfortunate broke salesman who is suddenly faced the bad news about his father and the necessity to deliver 150 grands to his sister he has never knew. He feels self-confident enough to convince her to let him left the money for himself, but very soon he realizes the futility of his life when he meets lonesome mother struggling for more significant needs than he could even imagine. The film was directed by Alex Kurtzman, who is better known as producer of action-packed movies like Star Trek and Cowboys & Aliens. People Like Us is his debut as director, and it's essential that this movie is a low budgeted one. However, it does not mean that something is wrong with this film. Awesome directional skills of Kurtzman multiplied on perfect assembly of cast and heart-touching screenplay (co-written by Alex too) resulted in must-see masterpiece equally standing among his other works as producer like Transformers Prime, Exit Strategy, Exit Strategy, Hawaii Five-0, Fringe. But, let's go back to the cast: beautiful Michelle Pfeiffer (Dark Shadows, Stardust) as Lillian is accompanied by Elizabeth Banks and charming Olivia Wilde (In Time, Tron: Legacy) as Hanna. The "downshifting" salesman is portrayed by Chris Pine, who is well known for his roles in latest Star Treks and very funny dramcom This Means War.
