It's the spring of 1922 in New York City, a decadent playground of shifting morals, glittering jazz, bootleg empires and skyrocketing stocks. Chasing the American Dream, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Golden Globe. Nominee Tobey Maguire) arrives from the Midwest only to land next door to Jay Gatsby (three-time Oscar. Nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), a mysterious millionaire whose estate overflows with endless parties. As Nicks beautiful cousin Daisy (Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan) and her blue-blooded husband Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton) fall into Gatsbys orbit, Nick bears witness to a tragedy of impossible love and incorruptible dreams. Based on F. Scott Fitzgeralds timeless epic, the Great Gatsby mirrors the struggles of modern times in a dazzling visual journey from the mind of Baz Luhrmann, director of the Oscar-winning Moulin Rouge.
