To celebrate school being over (for M and myself) we went to see The Great Gatsby last night. We've been looking forward to seeing this movie for soooo long and they kept delaying the release. My mom had just finished the book and we'd already read it so it was rather exciting.
We manged to avoid sitting near a gaggle of giggly middle schoolers and settled in the side row of seats. Now, I know the movie has gotten mixed reviews so far but we all loved it. Of course the story is a classic and the actors and actresses portrayed the characters perfectly. Gatsby's parties were extremely enticing as they came to life onscreen. All of it, just perfect.
