@Mikhail XO HA!
@Mikhail XO @NickRoman1 @Trey_ Well, I don't think it's going to necessarily have the psychologically incisive qualities of Fitzgerald's original, but I actually feel like this property is a perfect fit for Luhrmann's style over substance sensibilities, in the sense that even if he buries the nuance of the original text under a thick later of glitz, anachronistic music, and high fashion, it will still be worth it as long as he keeps at least the broad strokes of Fitzgerald's book.
