The Great Gatsby


I am just as excited about Gatsby, which opens May 10th, as is the rest of the world (*or at least our part of the world…) The preview alone (watch below) is a brilliant short film all on its own so I can imagine how good Baz Luhrmann‘s real thing is. If you’re a music fan the soundtrack is going to be insane. They’ve started releasing some of the tracks onto the world this week, including Sia‘s “Kill and Run” as well as The XX track “Together” and Lana Del Ray‘s “Young & Beautiful” (listen to all three below). And let’s not forget all the fashion inspiration that will come of this, plus a Fitzgerald revival (as if he really needs one… who doesn’t love the romantically tragic melancholy of a rich F. Scott Fitzgerald novel or short story ?) He is definitely one of the original Mad Men. Just the thought of it all makes me want to go dancing, drink martinis and have mad love affairs with men who are bad for me. Oh, wait, I already do that. Still, it will be mad fun to watch the drama on screen…
