Heart this

Friday I'm In Love

After the long wait (a full year after the trailer came out) Gatsby has arrived in the cinemas and I was lucky enough to see it last night.

If you haven't read the book, or know much about The Great Gatsby, it won't really matter. Just to watch the amazing visual extravaganza that Baz Luhrmann has created is enough to carry the entire movie along. I mean, if you think you've seen some parties in your time...you aint been to a Gatsby party! The set design, 20s costumes and the props - Oh.My.God. It's completely surreal and amazing all at once. You just have to see it...and on the big screen. They are also viewing it in 3D, not that I can even imagine what that must be like. 

I love a good Baz Luhrmann film and the visual effects and fabulous music score don't disappoint. The acting is mostly good, but I didn't feel the chemistry between the actors that you feel in Romeo and Juliet or Moulin Rouge. But boy does Leonardo DiCaprio put on a pretty good show...and a brilliant party!

I did love how the lines from the book came to life and this one is my favourite: "No amount of fire could challenge the fairytale he had stored up in his heart." - Nick Carraway - The Great Gatsby

Have a great weekend everyone and if you get a chance, be sure to grab some popcorn and head to the cinema. x
