This exclusive event is for MyPhoenix Members and their guests only.
World War I veteran Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) recalls to his psychiatrist stories of Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), a nouveau riche millionaire who was once his neighbour in the village of West Egg.
Nick recounts how he moved to a small groundskeeper's cottage seven years earlier, next door to the lavish Gatsby mansion, which often was the setting for extravangant parties hosted by the enigmatic businessman. Just over the bay, in another mansion, lived his cousin Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her womanising husband, Tom (Joel Edgerton).
He is drawn in to the world of the wealthy, and as he becomes closer to Jay, discovers he has been in love with Daisy for many years, and throws his opulent parties in the hope that she may one day attend.
