I thoroughly enjoyed The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo Dicaprio and Carey Mulligan. I am officially a Leonardo Dicaprio fan now, owwww. Now I see what all the fuss has been about all these years. I also regret having failed to read it my 8th grade year at the ripe age of 14, never remembering having been proposed to read it again, not even during my 2.5 years at Indiana University.
The story, set in the 1920’s, is about Gatsby a man who embodied the American dream of every gangster having went from rags to riches via an illegal trade of Alcohol in those times. He is madly in love with the beautiful Daisy who he shows many the grand gestures towards. Having worked his way up to millionaire status to win back her love after having lost her to a wealthy man during the war.
There are several morals to this enthralling tale. The story is one of bigotry, love,infidelity, the American Dream, and the fact that there is no such thing as a perfect love, among others. It is worth it to note that the narrator of The Great Gatsby, Nick Carraway, was subtly gay. A great movie and a must see. Cheers!
What moral of the story did you take from the movie?
