Leonardo DiCaprio and Baz Lurhmann are having the party of the century and youre invited.
Thats the mood of , a fun, fizzy film that puts the Moulin Rouge! directors spin on the F Scott Fitzgerald classic, premiering in Cannes tonight.
Carey Mulligan oozes gamine 1920s elegance as Daisy, a rich, bored society wife to macho Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton).
Daisy is also cousin to would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) and neighbour to legendary millionaire Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio).
Nicks growing obsession with the elusive Gatsby brings Daisy and Gatsby closer but at what cost?
Its a dramatic story but Luhrmann seems less interested than the novels themes than in the visual opportunities it offers: 3D art deco splendour, champagne-soaked society balls, huge mansions and sleek sports cars.
Add a high-octane soundtrack curated by Jay-Z and The Great Gatsby is loud, proud and a lot of fun.
Look out for our report from tonights star-studded premiere in the French Riviera somewhere Gatsby would surely feel at home.
The Great Gatsby is in cinemas from Thursday 16 May
