The Great Gatsby is a 2013 Australian-American 3D drama film based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel of the same name. The film was co-written and directed by Baz Luhrmann, and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, and Elizabeth Debicki. It follows the life and times of millionaire Jay Gatsby and his neighbor Nick, who recounts his encounter with Gatsby at the height of the Roaring Twenties. The film was originally going to be released on December 25, 2012, but moved to May 10, 2013 in 3D. While the film received mixed reviews from critics, audiences responded much more positively, and F. Scott Fitzgerald's family praised the film, claiming "Scott would have been proud". As of 2014, it is Baz Luhrmann's highest grossing film to date, earning over $350 million worldwide. At the 86th Academy Awards, it was nominated for Best Production Design and Best Costume Design, winning both.
Daisy Buchanan: I wish we could just run away. Jay Gatsby: Run away? No. Daisy, darling, that... that wouldn't be respectable. We're gonna live here, in this house. You and me.
Jay Gatsby: It's so sad, because it's so hard to make her understand. It's so hard to make her understand. I've gotten all these things for her. I've gotten all these things for her and now she just... she just wants to run away.
Tom Buchanan: I'd rather not be the polo player.
