The Great Gatsby
Carey Mulligan
Actress
Carey Mulligan gracefully illuminates the screen in director Baz Luhrman's film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby". An actress of considerable acclaim and award recognition, Ms. Mulligan has been honored with numerous nominations and wins for her previous roles in director Lone Scherfig's "An Education" (2009), "Never Let Me Go" (2010), "Shame"(2010), and "Drive"(2011) by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, British Independent Film Awards, BAFTA Awards, The Golden Globes, National Board of Review, London Critics Circle Film Awards and Toronto Film Critics Awards. She is an amazing young talent and no stranger to the Red Carpet.
 
The London born Ms. Mulligan speaks breathlessly as Daisy Buchanan amidst an Art Deco dazed extravaganza of ultra modern 3D technology and mesmerizing kaleidoscopic imagery whose scope has evolved far beyond the choreographed visual patterning of Busby Berkeley and the pioneers of early Hollywood. The films innovative visual hyperactivity and ramped up soundtrack provide a marked contrast to the aristocratic cadence of its dialog. The soundtrack features the workings of such popular artists as Beyonce, Fergie, Lana del Rey, Florence and the Machine, Coco O. of Quadron and Sia. Sets elaborately decorated by Beverly Dunn provide a magnificent stage upon which the actors chase the American Dream. Exquisite costumes of rhinestones, sequins, feathers and furs, chiffons, fringing, beads and lace and the finest summer linens are the vision of designer Catherine Martin and her collaborations with Miuccia Prada recreating and embellishing the fashions of the Roaring Twenties.
 
Inclusively, each of these elements makes for a successful translation of Fitzgerald's novel into the kinetic language of contemporary cinema at its best. MEJ.
