A writer and wall street trader, Nick, finds himself drawn to the past and lifestyle of his millionaire neighbor, Jay Gatsby.
The Great Gatsby would have been ready for theaters upon its original release date of December 2012. However, after a meeting with Warner Brothers President Jeff Robinov, the date was pushed back. Robinov asked Baz Luhrmann "Will the movie be ready for Christmas?", and Luhrman said yes. Robinov then asked "Will the movie you WANT to make be ready for Christmas?" to which Luhrmann replied no. Robinov then gave him a few more months to work on the film in post production.
In my younger and more vulnerable years, my father gave me some advice. "Always try to see the best in people," he would say. As a consequence, I'm inclined to reserve all judgements. But even I have a limit.
During Daisy's first visit to Gatsby's house, Nick asks Gatsby about a picture. Daisy hugs Nick from behind, but in the next shot they're at arms length.
Jay Gatsby's flower symbol is shown throughout the credits with different letters in place of the 'JG'. The 3rd to last flower, preceding the music section, has 'JZ' in it (an homage to the film's soundtrack producer Jay Z. The last flower has the movie's traditional 'JG' in it.
