Carey Mulligan vs. Mia Farrow
Leonardo DiCaprio vs. Robert Redford
I love the new Great Gatsby film by Baz Luhrmann with the incredible score by Jay-Z. This is a love story with a somber ending. A tough one to swallow in these troubled times of ours. We all want a happy ending and this story delivers unrequited love. But Jay Gatsby’s love for Daisy is So Big it consumes me like a caramel lollipop. He, Leo, is so handsome and convincing of his undying, unwavering love for Daisy, you really only want him to be loved. That is the message that emanated from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s story in The Roaring 20’s and is still pervasive almost 100-years later. The decadence and the impoverished; the gangsters; their muses. What have we to learn but that Love is the Answer. Gatsby would have wanted it that way… Beauty and Love.
