The Bristol Public Library will be showing The Great Gatsby (2013), starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, on Wednesday, January 22, at 3:00 p.m. Based on the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, this dazzling cinematic experience takes you into the world of the wealthy upper class of New York City during the roaring 1920s! Refreshments will be served!

Midwest native Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) arrives in 1922 New York in search of the American dream. Nick, a would-be writer, moves in next-door to millionaire Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and across the bay from his cousin Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering husband, Tom (Joel Edgerton). Thus, Nick becomes drawn into the captivating world of the wealthy and — as he bears witness to their illusions and deceits — pens a tale of impossible love, dreams, and tragedy.

PG-13; 143 minutes.
