The Great Gatsby: Movie Review

The Great Gatsby
has been my favorite book for years. It is beautiful and tragic and inspires you to experience life on a bigger scale. This book means the world to me so I was very nervous about seeing Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of it. I was worried it would be too flashy or the meaning of the book would get lost somehow. But, I was pleasantly surprised.

The Great Gatsby is a book that almost every high school student has had to read. Most of the time students hate the books they are forced to read in school, but I can guarantee you that The Great Gatsby is not one of them. I read it my junior year of high school and although I knew nothing about it, the description sounded intriguing. I got a couple pages in and I was hooked.
