So I went to the premiere. And…I enjoyed it thoroughly. Fairly faithful to the book, but there were two things done that I wasn’t such a fan of.
- Nick being in a sanitarium. I understand how it was essential for the narration, but overall, not a fan of that device.
- Gatsby saying Daisy’s name after he got shot. Just no.
Also, “Old Sport” got redundant after a while, but it does in the book as well.
I’d give it a B.
Good movie. Good adaptation. I probably cried a little bit.
Go see it people.
