A man caught between illusion and reality. The parties at Jay Gatsby’s Long Island mansion are legendarily glamorous affairs. Yet, amid the throng of guests, starlets, and champagne waiters, their host seems oddly aloof. For there is only one person Gatsby seeks to impress. She is Daisy Buchanan: married and elegant, seducing men with a silken charisma and ‘a voice... full of money’. As Gatsby pursues shady deals and his doomed obsession with Daisy, F. Scott Fitzgerald distills the essence of the Jazz Age and probes into the empty heart of the American Dream.
