i am, like so many unoriginal book-loving romantics, a huge f. scott fitzgerald fan. i particularly love great gatsby: the glamour, the unrequited love, the hedonism. i am also an unapologetic baz luhrmann fan: romeo + juliet changed my life, i know every word to every song in moulin rouge, and i think i am one of the three people on planet earth who truly enjoyed australia. SO: imagine my excitement at learning that baz luhrmann will be directing a remake of the great gatsby. with carey mulligan as daisy, and leonardo dicaprio as jay gatsby. to quote one of my favorite reality stars: i die.
