“He, who does not love movies with Leonardo DiCaprio, has not seen movies with DiCaprio!” – Under this slogan I went to the movies “The Great Gatsby“.

I was extremely pleased with this movie, because everything in it is so beautiful, refined, every detail thought out to the smallest detail that watching on the big screen, only reinforces the positive impressions of this film. The finishing touch in a kaleidoscope of what is happening on the screen – incredible dresses and suits from the legendary Prada and Tiffany & Co.
