About the movie
From Google listing
The Great Gatsby
Based on the 1925 novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald; screenplay by Francis Ford Coppola.
Starring Sam Waterston as Nick Carraway, Robert Redford as Jay Gatsby, Mia Farrow as Daisy, and Bruce Dern as Tom.
Nick Carraway (Waterston) is a young man from the Midwest living modestly among the decadent mansions of 1920s Long Island. He becomes involved in the life of the mysterious Jay Gatsby (Redford), a rich man who throws the most lavish parties on the island. But behind Gastby’s outgoing demeanor is a lonely man who wants nothing more than to be with his old love, Daisy (Farrow). She is married to the bullheaded Tom (Dern), creating a love triangle that will end in tragedy.
Won Academy Awards for Best Costume Design and Best Original Score.
Karen Black, who played Myrtle Wilson, won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress.
