The Great Gatsby - Summer Film Fest July 13, 7:00 pm

THE GREAT GATSBY

Nick Carraway (Sam Waterston) is a young man from the Midwest living modestly among the decadent mansions of 1920s Long Island. He becomes involved in the life of the mysterious Jay Gatsby (Robert Redford), a rich man who throws the most lavish parties on the island. But behind Gastby's outgoing demeanor is a lonely man who wants nothing more than to be with his old love, Daisy (Mia Farrow). She is married to the bullheaded Tom (Bruce Dern), creating a love triangle that will end in tragedy.

Directed by Jack Clayton. 1974. Rated PG. 2h 24m.

BANNING THE BOOK
According to the ALA (American Library Association), The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald was challenged at the Baptist College in Charleston, SC in 1987 because of "language and sexual references in the book.” It has also been pulled from high school curriculums in various US location for the same reasons.
