THE GREAT GATSBY | LEISURE

24/04/2013

 in 

The ’20s was never so loud as this romantic and luxurious version of the classic Jazz Age, F. Scott Fitzgerald. Robert Redford’s Jay Gatsby, who had once loved beautiful, spoiled Daisy Buchanan (Mia Farrow), but lost to a wealthy man. But now Gatsby became mysteriously wealthy and willing to risk everything to have her back. Winner of two Academy Awards, The Great Gatsby features a fine cast in an elegant script by Francis Ford Coppola. And in the center is the evocation of a time of bustling jazz and bubbling champagne, of women as exotic and demanding, as a garden of rare flowers, and easy lives, committed for having achieved too much too soon.

THE GREAT GATSBY will open the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The long-awaited Baz Lurhmann remake will be screened in 3D on the first night of this year’s schedule, on May 15. Actress Audrey Tautou will act as host for the opening ceremony – as well as for the closing ceremony on May 26.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby and Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, the F. Scott Fitzgerald adaptation was originally scheduled to open in Christmas 2012 – but was pushed back to allow Lurhmann more time to perfect the production.

“It is a great honour for all those who have worked on The Great Gatsby to open the Cannes Film Festival,” said the director. “F. Scott Fitgerald wrote some of the most poignant and beautiful passages of his extraordinary novel just a short distance away at a villa outside St. Raphael.”

It was previously confirmed that over 40 costumes in the film – including those worn by Mulligan – were custom-made by Miuccia Prada, using reworked pieces from the Prada and Miu Miu archives. The jewellery featured all came courtesy of Tiffany & Co, while the men’s costumes were created by American brand Brooks Brothers.
