Great Gatsby Summer

We’re excited for the release of Baz Luhrmann’s version of the Fitzgerald classic (even though it’s in 3D. Bummer.) . . . but it’s not coming out til Christmas! That seems wrong; seems like it’s a hot summer story.

Instead we netflixed a 2000 version starring Paul Rudd as Nick; it left quite a bit to be desired.

So today, on the longest day of the year, the summer solstice, grab your gin and tonic and go ahead and go with 1974’s Robert Redford (or of course the book itself) if you’re jonesing for a bit of Gatsby.

P.S. Check out the trailer for the Luhrmann adaptation here, old sport.

P.P.S. How to dress like Daisy Buchanan.

  1. Well, the trailer wouldn’t load for me, but that’s fine because I’m not a big Leo fan. However, I clicked on an interesting link to a Slate article written by the Robertson Media Professor at UVa about the recent firing of the head of the university!
