This modern take on a classic tale is almost a musical, although not officially. There are vibrant scenes with familiar pop tunes underpinning the drama and the decadence. Watching this movie makes you want to have lavish parties and long for the time of the roaring twenties. There of course is the beauty of the sweet romance between Gatsby and Daisy, that harkens back to pre-teen beliefs about what love was about. A great movie to watch for a pick me up when you need to be projected into a world of allure and fantasy.
