Back The Great Gatsby

Movie Synopsis

Set in the Roaring 20s, Nick Carraway, a writer-turned-bond-trader, takes a cottage in West Egg, across the water from his cousin Daisy -- who has married into the sizable fortune of Tom Buchanan -- and next door to a reclusive and mysterious tycoon -- Jay Gatsby. Nick is unaware that Gatsby and Daisy have a history, and Gatsby intends to use Nick to facilitate a reunion between the former lovers. Nick is drawn into Gatsby?s world of glitzy parties and shady associates. Nick, just like the viewers, have to determine "Who is Jay Gatsby?" Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel.
