Synopsis

Often described as the Great American Novel, "The Great Gatsby" - F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece of the Jazz Age - has become one of the most beloved and revered books of the 20th Century. Narrated by the enigmatic Nick Carraway, the story takes place in the well-to-do section of Long Island, New York, where socialites and millionaires cavort about on their yachts and hydroplanes, oblivious to the day-to-day drudgery of the working class drones they motor past each day. Nick, renting a small cottage for the summer, is drawn into the social circle of his next-door neighbor, the handsome and mysterious Jay Gatsby. As he grows closer to Gatsby, Nick comes to learn that the reclusive young millionaire is pining for, and hoping to reclaim, his old flame Daisy Buchanan, who lives directly across the bay with her abrasive and unfaithful husband Tom.Set amid wild, Jazz Age parties, flowing champagne, speedy sports cars and dark, hidden secrets, "The Great Gatsby" has earned a well-deserved place in the canon of American literature. At once a celebration of the free-spirited and brightly-lit era of the Roaring Twenties and a penetrating examination of the heartlessness of its inhabitants, "Gatsby" is one of the most well-read and analyzed novels in history and the subject of numerous adaptations for the stage and screen.
