The Great Gatsby Movie continues the exciting life that Nick Carpino leads after he witnesses a staged accident involving a rich friend and his driver. After the accident, Nick plans to get the people involved to pay for the damages, but things take an unexpected turn when he meets the beautiful Mary Poppins. Mary's sad story of losing her husband and becoming a housekeeper for her brother charmed Nick, who decides to help her move into a new home. Once she is settled in, he realizes he has fallen head over heels in love with her.
If you're looking for the quintessential seaside comedy, The Great Gatsby should be the first film that comes to mind. Based on the true events that happened in the years following the Great Depression, the movie provides a fun and entertaining scene of a star studded cast playing their starring roles. After watching the movie, you may feel as though you've known the main characters all your life, or at least the actor playing the part of Nick should be familiar to you.
Based on the novel by Donald Trump, the movie takes place in the New York City of the late 1920s. It is one of the classic tales about how the rich and famous moved into the city and established a beach estate for the rich and famous. The Great Gatsby represents the good times and fun that the city was known for at that time. The movie chronicles the fun and enjoyable life that Nick and Daisy had led up to their wedding and the proposal that eventually became a reality.
One of the great things about the book is the character of Nick Carpino. As the son of wealthy real estate developers, Nick is destined to become the next millionaire when Daisy becomes engaged to a rich arts enthusiast. Nick takes on the role of being a groom to the rich. It is Nick's great love of art and music that captures the heart of Daisy. He also happens to know the couple and even asks them out to a dinner party, which they happily agree to.
Another great thing about the book is the story of how Daisy and Nick met. They knew each other through their shared love of art and music, so when the opportunity for them to meet up comes, they are naturally drawn towards each other. However, the date they get together is just as weird as the other weird moments in the book. The odd couple goes out on what appears to be a date, but turns out to be more of a secret rendezvous involving a talking dog. It ends in a crazy, exciting, and very romantic kiss that both of them will always remember.
The screenplay for the movie follows the basic story outline, except it adds some interesting and humorous elements to make the story more entertaining. There are some good one liners that remind us of the earlier part of the book when Nick and Daisy were first getting to know each other. The actors all do a good job of bringing life to their characters, and the screenplay flows as well. It might be lacking in some areas (particularly the strange sequence toward the end), but it makes up for it in other ways. The great Gatling gun scene was a nice touch.
One interesting thing I found was the use of computer animation in the film. The computer generated effects were especially nice to watch, especially when they were being used to create the crazy montage at the end of the movie. The other great thing is that you don't have to be a technology buff to understand what is going on. All you need to know is that the computer generated images look pretty good, and the actors and actresses did a great job.
The Great Gatsby movie part two should be available sometime in the future. Right now, you can enjoy the first part of the movie on the theater. It's an interesting and unique take on a classic story, and one that fans of the movie will find fascinating to watch. Don't miss out on your chance to see the next part before the movie becomes too old. It's sure to be a hit! If you haven't seen it, you're missing out!
