The Great Gatsby

Went to catch this movie today with J. Who's in it? Leonardo DiCaprio, Joel Edgerton, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Elizabeth Debicki etc.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jay Gatsby who loves Daisy.
Carey Mulligan plays Daisy Buchanan who is the wife of Joel Edgerton and the lover of Leonardo DiCaprio.
Tobey Maguire plays Nick Carraway who is the cousin of Daisy and Jay Gatsby's next-door neighbour.
Elizabeth Debicki plays Jordan Baker who is Daisy's long-time friend.
Joel Edgerton plays Tom Buchanan who is a millionaire and the husband of Daisy.

In summary, it's all glitz and glamour. I feel that the acting is good, the costume, music etc are good but the story line sucks. It's all about Gatsby and Daisy falling in love with each other but Daisy didn't marry Gatsby as he was poor. In the end, she was married to Tom who is a millionaire. Few years down the road, Gatsby tried to win Daisy back by getting her to leave Tom. It seems that she once love Tom and still love Gatsby. In the end, Gatsby died with Nick being the only one attending his funeral. Daisy didn't even send any flowers.

What did I learn from this movie? Some Women = Trouble. Yes, I'm a woman myself but most of the time, we are not decisive and most of the time, it's because of that, that misunderstandings occur.
