Moulin Rouge is my all time favorite movie. So when director Baz Luhrmann has a new movie coming out, you bet your ass I will be excited to see it. For 2013 that means his version of The Great Gatsby. Why should you see it? First of all, it is the classic tale by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It will have amazing costumes, brought to you by Catherine Martin (Luhrmann’s wife and the costume/production designer for most of his films). The scenery pops in the trailer. And let’s not forget a cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire.
And for some additional fun, take this quiz. It’s Jay-Z lyrics versus lines from The Great Gatsby. How cool is that (Thanks Jess!)??
