The Great Gatsby – trailer

Baz Lurhman looks set to bring his trademark ostentatious, flamboyant direction to his latest effort, an adaptation of the F.Scott Fitzgerald novel, The Great Gatsby.

For me, being a fan of Lurhman’s imitable style and his ‘Red Curtain Trilogy’, Lurhman is the perfect choice to direct Fitzgerald’s iconic novel, capturing the essence of both the period and the novel.  Lurhman, working with Catherine Martin, his usual production designer, always ensures a beautiful film.

Perfectly cast, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular Gatsby, Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway and the wonderful Carey Mulligan as Daisy, I can only hope Lurhman’s latest lives up to the potential promised by the trailer.
