Join us afterwards for a nosh to discuss the movie and socialize at Paradise Bakery and Cafe at 67th and 101.
The movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, and Carey Mulligan.
The film follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
The movie is $6.50 for seniors and $9.50 for seniors in CD. Please make your preference. Please R.S.V.P.!!
