Set in New York City in 1922, as well as a fictional town on Long Island (think Hamptons), F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote a tale of lavish parties, lots of decadence and, gasp! debauchery.
I am amazed at just how crazy the Roaring 20's were! My mom was born in 1923, and she had older siblings in their teens. But I am sure they did not "hobnob" with socialites.

The lavish parties were so over the top, zebras splashing in the swimming pool with inebriated guests.
The Moet was flowing.

We saw it in 2D, but it was also available in 3D. The cinematography was outstanding, so was the soundtrack. Songs by Jay-Z, Beyonce, Rhianna, Will.i.am, Lana Del Rey.

It is definitely a chick flick, so grab your best girlfriend or daughter (older one) or your momma, and go see it. A matinee, early dinner with a friend, a favorite thing for me!
