Jeroen van Koningsbrugge is playing the leading role in The Great Gatsby, based on the world-famous and frequently filmed novel by the American author F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Directed by Servé Hermans, we see how Jay Gatsby lies about his life in order to look more successful, richer and more attactive to his unattainable true love. But there seems to be a limit to a fabricated life.
Jay Gatsby is a rich and mysterious veteran from the First World War. He has made his way to the upper class of society. His estate shimmers with fashionable young people who drink and dance. But Gatsby, young, handsome and terribly rich, seems to be a loner among the crowd. Step by step, the unmasking of the charismatic and modern anti-hero Gatsby unfolds.
