‘The Great Gatsby’ follows F. Scott Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, in the midst of the roaring twenties, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, he tells a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
Baz Luhrmann directs the ‘The Great Gatsby’ from a screenplay co-written with frequent collaborator Craig Pearce, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel of the same name. Lead by Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, ‘The Great Gatsby’ also stars Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, Joel Edgerton and Carey Mulligan as Tom and Daisy Buchanan, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke as Myrtle and George Wilson, newcomer Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker, and Indian film legend Amitabh Bachchan as Meyer Wolfsheim. ‘The Great Gatsby’ arrives in cinemas on May 10th in the US and Canada, with an international rollout on May 15th (May 16th in the UK). Look out for a more in-depth interview with Carey Mulligan for the film in May.
How did you find it working with Baz Luhrmann? He’s a filmmaker known for his lush, spectacular style….
Carey Mulligan: I love working with Baz, I love the pace of it. I remember even in the first audition for ‘The Great Gatsby’ I auditioned with Leonardo DiCaprio and there was three or four cameras in the room, there was a person taking stills, there was a person on a handheld camera, there was a 3D camera…. I was being shot from every angle. We did the scene with the beautiful shirts, and we did it over and over and over again. We’d get halfway through and he’d cut and we’d go back to the beginning. And he was so excited and he had so much energy (laughs). I love that, I love the movement and the confidence I got from him kind of enjoying what was going on. It’s so infectious.
