"The Great Gatsby" is an American classic. But that hasn't stopped Australian director Baz Luhrmann from bringing his trademark style to the tale, set to a provocatively modern soundtrack.
With Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role, the movie depicts the wild glamor and energy of Roaring Twenties America, while also evoking a "hollow" feeling at the heart of F. Scott Fitzgerald's era-defining 1925 novel.
Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan also plays a small part in the movie, as a shadowy organized crime figure who helps the mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby make his money.
