Gatsby? What Gatsby?

 After watching all of "the Great Gatsby" trailers about million times each, me and my bestfriend Eglė went to finally see it in the movie theater last Saturday. I was sooooo excited! I've read the book writen by F. Scott Fitzgerald earlier but because there were no new lithuanian versions of the book printed before the movie came out, I've only read the one printed in 1967 and yeah, that's in soviet union times. As we all know to soviets liked to edit, censor or even cut out some parts or pages that they though were not suitable and appropriate, so that's why I was even more excited to see the movie, because I knew that there will be a lot of parts that weren't mentioned in the version I red.
And all I can say is that the movie did not disappoint me at all. It's soooo great that I don't even have words to describe it. Beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. And the soundtrack! Amazing! I don't want to spoil any parts to anyone so I'll stop writing now, but everyone should go and definitely see it! If I could, I would go and see it a hundred times more.

My favorite version of the trailer:

Some of the beautiful soundtrack:


  1. O knygoj tikrai daug ko nebuvo?:)

    1. Visas pagrindas buvo, bet daug smulkmenėlių ir mini scenelių nebuvo. Bet aišku nežinau, ką sukūrė grynai režisierius, o kas buvo ir originalioje knygos versijoje.
