From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby. The filmmaker created his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story, bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before, in a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. The Great Gatsby follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan.It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.Special Features:The Greatness of GatsbyWithin and Wihout with Tobey MaguireThe Swinging Sounds of GatsbyThe Jazz AgeRazzle Dazzle: The Fashion of the '20sFitzgerald's Visual PoetryGatsby Revealed: Gatsby's PartyDisconcerting RideThe PlazaPool SceneDeleted Scenes1926 - The Great Gatsby Trailer

Everyone knows "The Great Gatsby", every American reader, and everyone who belonged to the cream of the crop in 1920's New York that F. S. Fitzgerald captured in his famous novel. We have carefully cut the book down to 4 hours, cast more than 30 actors, added real sounds and period jazz music. The illusion is perfect, so simply press PLAY and you will become one of the characters in the story. It's the story of Nick Carraway, a young man form the Midwest and a New York businessman, his neighbor Jay Gatsby - an extravagant millionaire longing for his great love. "The Great Gatsby" is a fascinating portrait of the Jazz Age generation that lived, loved, caroused, experienced disappointment, and believed in new beginnings. This colorful interpretation is a thrilling experience and a tribute to Fitzgerald's loved novel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Weintraub, Lily Chu, Madelyn M. P.

A new American classic: a dynamic tale of triumph against the odds and the compelling story of one woman's struggle for equality that belongs alongside Jazz by Toni Morrison and The Color Purple by Alice Walker. Ivoe Williams, the precocious daughter of a Muslim cook and a metalsmith from central-east Texas, first ignites her lifelong obsession with journalism when she steals a newspaper from her mother's white employer. Living in the poor, segregated quarter of Little Tunis, Ivoe immerses herself in printed matter as an escape from her dour surroundings. She earns a scholarship to the prestigious Willetson College in Austin only to return overqualified to the menial labor offered by her hometown's racially biased employers. Ivoe eventually flees the Jim Crow South with her family and settles in Kansas City, where she and her former teacher and lover, Ona, found the first female-run African-American newspaper, Jam! On the Vine. In the throes of the Red Summer, the 1919 outbreak of lynchings, and race riots across the Midwest, Ivoe risks her freedom and her life to call attention to the atrocities of segregation in the American prison system. Skillfully interweaving Ivoe's story with the stories of her family members, LaShonda Katrice Barnett's Jam on the Vine is both an epic vision of the hardships and injustices that defined an era and a moving and compelling story of a complicated history we only thought we knew. 1.

Fame, fortune, and beautiful models - Howard Chandler Christy had them all.Christy was the most famous American painter of the Jazz Age, a time when an elite brotherhood of New York artists dominated the publishing world. Christy had eclipsed all of them with his "Christy Girl", an idealized woman who redefined beauty, influenced fashion, and inspired generations of women. Illustrated in popular magazines, best-selling novels, and top-ranked newspapers, the "Christy Girl" transformed the artist into a household name.In Romantic Illusions, the second book in Head's An Affair with Beauty trilogy, Christy once again comes to life through the eyes of Nancy Palmer. Christy, his wife and former model, as she recounts her first Christmas with Howard and his family at his Ohio mansion, the Barracks, in 1912.Howard tells of his early years studying art in near-poverty in New York City and his sudden ascent to stardom as the top pupil of William Merritt Chase, the premier portrait painter in America. During "The Great Flood of 1913" - the worst tragedy the Midwest had ever encountered - Howard describes his daring experiences with Teddy Roosevelt during the Spanish-American War in Cuba and his brush with near-certain death, no less than three times.The effects of the war profoundly transform Howard, inspiring him to create his vision of beauty, the "Christy Girl," which catapults him to stardom.When romance blossoms between artist and model, Howard is slow to seek a divorce from his estranged wife, Maebelle, jeopardizing Nancy's desires and compelling her to uncover his scandalous past. As World War I break out, Howard returns to New York City, forcing Nancy to risk everything as she reveals her true feelings for him. 1. Language: English.
