The post-“Great Gatsby” world
In case you hadn?t heard, there?s this teeny, tiny totally subtle movie coming out today. We hear it involves drop-waist dresses and Jay-Z. Oh, and it?s based on that book by F. Scott Fitzgerald (no, not The Curious Case of Benjamin Button).
We?ll reserve our cinematic judgments until after we?ve seen the film (we preordered tickets weeks ago, obviously). But we?re not too shy to make a series of bold predictions before the lights go down. Here, our forecast for what will inevitably be a Great Gatsby super-storm.
