The Great Gatsby

 Unless you're living under a rock, I'm sure you've seen the trailer for The Great Gatsby. The costumes and sets look absolutely stunning, as if we'd expect anything less from director Baz Luhrmann. But at same time I find myself hoping for something that is not too...Baz Luhrmann-y? I've always imagined the story as being depicted in a way that's more subtle, perhaps even with an air of melancholy; but perhaps that's the route that was taken with Paul Rudd's version from 2000 (I love you Paul, but this just didn't cut it). I'm also excited for the inevitable resurgence of twenties-era inspired fashion by the time this film premieres in the winter: yes, please. Join me in fawning over all of Carey Mulligan's headpieces and watch the trailer here.

  1. I have to be honest and admit that I cannot for the life of me remember what this story line is about because I haven't read this book since junior year of high school and that was about 13 years ago! LOL. But I absolutely LOVE Baz Luhrmann's movies. He's the one who introduced me to Ewan McGregor and his sexy singing voice and my stalkerish obsession with him since then. :P This does look like a very colorful rendition and I'm sure it will win some awards this year! <3
