Here Comes The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan and Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway. Though filmed in Australia, Lurhmann relied on historic Long Island photos (including those from Old Long Island) to create his versions of the Gatsby and Buchanan houses for the movie. Click HERE for an Architectural Digest article on the set design, including a mention that 'Westbury House' was the basis for the Buchanan residence. They also mention 'La Selva' (really?) as one of those used for inspiration as well as 'Beacon Towers' and 'Oheka'. Click HERE to watch the trailer for the movie and HERE for my post on the movie from last summer. Good or bad it will most certainly be entertaining.
