You may also be interested in seeing the 1974 film version starring Robert Redford, Mia Farrow, and Sam Waterston which is available in the library’s DVD collection.

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s most well-known work offers brilliant insight into the psychology of a generation but remains an enduring study into human nature which transcends time and place. The timeless tale has been re-imagined in another film version set to be released in 2012 by director Baz Luhrmann and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire.
