Synopsis

Several filmmakers attempted to adapt F. Scott Fitzgerald's best-known novel before Baz Luhrmann's 2013 version, but none did so with the Australian director's trademark flair for mixing flamboyant costumes, outrageous performances, spectacular visual effects and surprising musical choices. Although the film is set during the Jazz Age of the 1920s, some of today's biggest names appear on the soundtrack including Jay-Z, Lana Del Rey and Frank Ocean. Nick Carraway stumbles upon his charismatic neighbour, Jay Gatsby, who throws frequent, lavish parties. As the two men's social circles collide, a mysterious story of love and tragedy unravels.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
