For those not in the know, Gatsby is taken from F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, narrated from the point of view of aspiring writer and World War I veteran Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire). Renting a house on West Egg, Long Island, Nick encounters some of the rich types who enjoy the high life of the locality, including the enigmatic Jay Gatsby and some he already knows, including his cousin, Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan).
Their lives seem to be perfect, but most of it seems to be a front, as they’re all bored and carrying on regular affairs. One – between Daisy’s wife Tom (Joel Edgerton) and a woman named Myrtle Wilson (Isla Fisher) ends in tragedy.
