最近真的很多以作家為主角的片子呢!難道說Hollywood也吹起了文藝風?不知道大家有沒有一種感覺,只要電影標榜”真實故事改編”或”改編自同名小說”,絕對會有那種立刻買票的衝動?小編我個人是非常吃這套的!每當聽到這種號召一出現,我通常會先飛奔到書局買原著小說。文字的想像空間都比較大,故事的情節也完整許多,看完小說再看電影,比較不會有霧煞煞的哪種迷失感。建議大家下次可以抓本小說拜讀先。

The writer Nick Carraway leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay, Daisy,and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
作家尼克卡拉威,他在1922年春天離開中西部來到紐約市,這個時代充滿著式微的道德、絢爛的爵士、私酒的大戶和狂飆的股市。Nick追求著自己的美國夢,住在笙歌鼎沸的神秘百萬富翁Jay Gatsby家隔壁,而海灣對面則住著Daisy和她那風流的名門丈夫Tom Buchanan。Nick深受這個紙醉金迷的上流世界及其中的幻想、愛情和謊言吸引,他目睹這種世界內、外的一切,於是決定提起筆寫下一個故事,關於一段無緣的愛情、不滅的夢想和讓人心痛的故事,並反映出當前的時代和掙扎。
