"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.
