Ever since Gatsby met Daisy Buchanan 5 years ago, he was in love. Then Gastby was sent off to war, leaving to poor, heartbroken Daisy alone. He was no where to be found, but on the day of Daisy's marriage to Tom, another wealthy man, she got a letter from Gatsby, devoting his love to her. Daisy was torn but chose to marry Tom instead. Gatsby moved back to New York City across the bay from Daisy and Tom. He threw the wildest and most popular parties just to try and get the attention of Daisy. No one believed that Gatsby was real, that he was a rumor, but Daisy's brother Nick and friend Jordan know that he is real.

Daisy and Gatsby are reunited by Nick and Jordan. They fall madly in love again and never want to leave each others grasp. But they have to break the news to Tom, and doing that will be a struggle as Daisy faces the difficulties of choosing one or the other.

What will happen next?

I personally loved this movie and I must warn you to bring a box of tissues as there is quite some heartbreak! I love this era and all of the costumes. All cast and crew members are to be recognised for their hard working achievements!

PS - The soundtrack is absolutely amazing as well!!!
