The Great Gatsby

15 May

Have any of you seen the new Great Gatsby movie yet?!  If so, what did you think?  Jonathan and I saw it this past weekend, and we were really impressed!  The director, Baz Luhrmann, put a lot of thought and effort into the music for the movie.  Because this story takes place during the Jazz era, Luhrmann wanted the viewers to get a sense of the feeling that came along with the arrival of Jazz.  He seamlessly fused together modern music with the energy of the Jazz era.  It is truly amazing.  The below video is a great featurette explaining the music behind the movie.  I highly recommend watching it before you see the movie!
