The movie is about the mysterious Jay Gatsby (Leo DiCaprio) and his relationship with new found friend Nick Carraway (Toby McGuire). After dragging us through some pretty boring dialog and silly characters the story gets down to a not-hot-or-romantic-affair between Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan). In the end Gatsby comes across as a narcissist and Carraway an insecure writer that may or may not have been the author of the book, F. Scott Fitzgerald.
I wanted to like this movie but did not. On a scale of ten, give it ★★★.
