Great (F.) Scott

6/04/2012




My copy of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby is dogeared and water-stained, and I've seen the film starring Robert Redford more than a handful of times. Needless to say, I cannot wait until the new Baz Luhrmann rendition comes out. Watch the trailer and read this article from the Los Angeles Times until then.


P.S. Has anyone seen the new Wes Anderson? I'm dying to.
