The Great Gatsby was a good movie, I believe, for Robert Redford. He portrays dashing Jay Gatsby and Mia Farrow portrays spoiled Daisy Buchanan.
The time is the roaring '20s, and Jay Gatsby is a very wealthy man who is trying to win back the love of Daisy Buchanan, whom he lost earlier to a wealthy man at a time when he himself wasn't rich. This movie contains some beautiful music and is well acted by the cast. It also stars Karen Black, Scott Wilson, Sam Waterston, Lois Chiles and Bruce Dern.
The Great Gatsby is based on the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The movie won two Academy Awards, and the script was written by Francis Ford Coppola. It is rated PG and runs for 143 minutes.
There isn't much in the way of special features, only widescreen version, Dolby Digital and English subtitles.
I enjoyed this movie. One reason was because of the music and another reason was simply because I like Robert Redford. This movie takes you back to a different time, and it's fun to watch the dancing from the 1920s.
I thought it was an all-around good movie.
