Gatsby


Prime due immagini ufficiali da Il Grande Gatsby, nuovo adattamento del romanzo di Francis Scott Fitzgerald in arrivo sugli schermi. Diretto da Baz Luhrmann (il regista del Moulin Rouge). Con Leonardo DiCaprio (Jay Gatsby), Carey Mulligan (Daisy Buchanan), Tobey Maguire (Nick Carraway), Joel Edgerton (Tom Buchanan).

La fine del romanzo:

And as I sat there brooding on the old, unknown world, I thought of Gatsby’s wonder when he first picked out the green light at the end of Daisy’s dock. He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night.

Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter — to-morrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And one fine morning ——

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

The Great Gatsby, (Robert Redford, Mia Farrow) 1974

  1. Ho appena finito di leggere Il Grande Gatsby. È un capolavoro. Ma mi chiedo come mai Daisy abbia nei due film (in quello del 1974 e nel recente making of) i capelli biondi e corti quando nel romanzo la si tratteggia con i capelli neri. È una scelta voluta o casuale?
