The lovely Carey Mulligan (Drive) takes on the role of the troubled Daisy Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann’s 3D production of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic tale, The Great Gatsby. And in this interview courtesy of Warner Bros Pictures, Mulligan recalls her reaction to learning she had landed the pivotal role in the film and what she did to research the part. She also talks about working with director Baz Luhrmann and her onscreen love interest Leonardo DiCaprio, the costumes, and how she chooses film projects.
The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, 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.
