I was lucky enough to go to an early showing of The Great Gatsby tonight. I did not go in with very high hopes, only because I really loved Moulin Rouge and who didn't go nuts over Romeo + Juliet? I didn't think he could top those two movies.
However, Baz Luhrmann did not upset, yet again. The movie is fast, the movie is fun, energetic, magical, colorful, heart warming, heart breaking, exciting and worth every buttery popcorn kernel and oz of sugary large drink I shoved down my throat.
Thank you, Sissy for the awesome invitation and free movie!! Oh, and for Leonardo DiCaprio OWNING the role of Gatsby. He is fantastic!
