The Great Gatsby?









The film stills of The Great Gatsby have started to filter through. I'm in so much agony over this. The Great Gatsby is one of my all time favorite books, but Baz Luhrmann is my least favorite director. The only film I've liked of his was Strictly Ballroom, and that's because I used to be a competitive ballroom dancer and OTT it definitely is. I'm struggling with the casting on this one too. Carey as Daisy? No. Tobey as Nick? No. Isla as Mrytle? No. I dunno, I guess I'll wait and see. But isn't Carey's purple dress pretty?


Love WTP x

I kind of agree. No one has yet to make a truly great film version of Great Gatsby and I don't think Baz is necessarily the man to do the job either. His films are way to OTT for me. I do love Carey Mulligan though. And yes, that purple frock is pretty. I think I'll wait for the reviews.

I've been worried about this movie. I really hope Baz does wave his over-the-top wand and ruin a beautiful story.

Still… I can't wait to see it and the fashions in it!

Yes, I'm with you - I wonder if Baz is going to do it justice? It looks gorgeous I think thanks to Catherine Martins superb production design but....we'll see!
