daisy and gatsby: a love affair to remember

The tarnished love affair of young Daisy and the mysterious Mr. Gatsby was one romance I did not mind reading about in school. I remember vividly picturing the novel in my mind, with their two houses across the lake from each other, and Daisy just driving along that road...sigh. I cannot wait to see it alive on the big screen. Leo is the perfect Mr. Gatsby. See for yourself - trailer below:
