The New Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan. I recently discovered Luhrmann's Facebook page Bazmark - The Great Gatsby which includes images that were used to create the Buchanan house in the film. The homes featured on his page include Pembroke (De Lamar), Old Westbury Gardens (Phipps), Groton Farm (Winthrop) and an image that looked very familiar to me, the cover of the brochure of Longfields (Thompson) that I posted here on Old Long Island in 2009. This prompted me to watch the preview in hopes that Daisy's house was pictured and I believe the above screen grab is just that. If so it would appear the Buchanan residence is a whole lot of Groton Farm with formal gardens that appear to be a cross between Longfields and Old Westbury Gardens among others.
