Books On Film | The Great Gatsby

The newest film adaptation of the 1925 novel The Great Gatsby was released this past Friday. The novel details the extravagant life of a fictional millionaire during the roaring 20s.

I think just about everyone was assigned The Great Gatsy as required reading in high school, but how many of you actually read it? Be honest!

For those who didn't, now is the time! And for those who did, you can re-read it and picture Leonardo DiCaprio as your main character in preparation for the movie.

Of course, this isn't the first adaptation of the book. It is considered a classic tale and has been adapted several times for television and for the big screen. The most famous previous adaptation would be the 1974 version starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. 

Watch the trailer!
