The Great Gatsby takes place in the roaring 1920s. Nick Carraway finds himself living among the idle rich. As he surveys their reckless lives and relationships, he is repeatedly drawn to one man who still believes in the American Dream: Jay Gatsby. As Nick and Gatsby are carried along by forces that neither of them fully control or understand, they get a thorough education on the consequences of materialism, deceit, and petty self-interest.
