The Great Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio; discussion at Panera Bread after

1:00 p.m. is the start time.

The Great Gatsby is based on the classic novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald that captures the spirit of the roaring 20's.  It's about a Midwestern war veteran who finds himself drawn to the past and lifestyle of his millionaire neighbor.  I encourage you to read the novel if you never have.  Our post-film discussion will focus on how well the film captured the novel and how it stacked up to past adaptations such as Robert Redford's Gatsby film from the 70's.

The Great Gatsby - 143 Minutes - Rated PG-13 - Directed by Baz Luhrmann - Also starring Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan

Link to imdb and trailer.

For those interested, an early dinner and discussion will be at Panera Bread after which is very close to the Thoroughbred.

    That was a really good version. I miss Robert Redford but Leo did a great job.
    I have a question. How long did Daisy wait for Gatsby before she got married?

    The film time for a 2D show is 1:00 p.m. Here's a link for tickets. I suggest buying in advance as they could sell out. See you there.
