Movie Based on a Book: The Great Gatsby

Love, lust and liquor kept Jay Gatsby's (Leonardo DiCaprio) legendary parties alive and the place to be seen. His lavish attempts at catching the eye of former love Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan) unintentionally garnered him the attention of an intrigued neighbor, Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire). It isn't long before Nick and Gatsby's friendship grows and the light of luxury soon begins to fade. Nothing is as grand as it seems and the price to pay for a series of love triangles will be a high one.  AUTHOR: F. Scott Fitzgerald

    It has been years since I read the book, so do not remember the entire storyline. It was over the top, and the cinematography was wonderful.

      It looks like it is going to be just you and me. Give me a time. I am not as familiar with that Regal. I usually go to Baywalk or Largo Mall as they are easy to get to.

      Hi Diane. I'll post the time on Wednesday as soon as the actual movie times are posted. We still have quite a few days for folks to RSVP too. :)
