Who Made It: Baz Luhrmann cowrote and directs this film based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel.
What's It About: Love, lust and betrayal in New York during the roaring '20s
Why We Want to See It: Luhrmann reunites with his Romeo + Juliet star Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays the mysterious Jay Gatsby – another tragic, lovesick literary icon. It's a potent combination that, combined with Luhrmann's magical, musical vision and knack for imbuing period pieces with slick, modern-day elements, will likely give the story a memorably fresh spin. -- Rick Marshall
