The Great Gatsby Film Review
By: Joanne Serrieh
It is very exciting when important novels like The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, are made into Hollywood movies, especially when you can compare how close what you imagined while reading the book is to how the director sees it. I had the opportunity to attend a special screening of The Great Gatsby before its official release, May 10th, 2013, and I absolutely loved it. The movie captures the themes that we all had to analyze in our high school English classes, such as the difference between the lives of the newly rich and those who are born rich and even the significance of the green light that is a symbol of J. Gatsby’s high hopes of getting Daisy, the love of his life, back. I do not want to spoil the movie for those who have not read the book so I will focus more on the production aspect of the film.
