"The Great Gatsby" at Digiplex Theaters

The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest for New York City in the spring of 1922 to chase his own American Dream.

In the spirit of the unprecedented prosperity and material excess of the 1920’s, Nick, played by actor Tobey Maguire, finds himself next door to the mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby who holds opulent parties.  

Nick is drawn into the world of the super-rich and ultimately writes about his experiences living in their world with impossible love, illusions and high-octane tragedy.

Money, opulence and extravagant living became a way of life in an era of decayed social and moral values.  Nick struggles along with the disintegration of a period of loosening morals, bootleg kings and glittering jazz.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jay Gatsby in "The Great Gatsby"
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio captures the complexity of Jay Gatsby’s romantic, dark and glamorous side, set beside the extravagant hope and crashing dreams in the 1920’s.  “The Great Gatsby” takes viewers back to the excitement of living in the roaring 20’s and the clash between “old money” and “new money” and materialistic social climbers.
