'The Great Gatsby' 'captures summer in New York... accurately... viscerally,' the director said. 'The Great Gatsby' stars Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular character and Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan.
"Is there a book that captures summer in New York more accurately, more viscerally than 'The Great Gatsby'? I don't think so," Luhrmann told Reuters.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, and with a soundtrack produced by rapper Jay-Z, the film has struck promotional partnerships with clothing retailer Brooks Brothers, jeweler Tiffany & Co. and Moet & Chandon champagne.
