Baz Luhrmann has chosen his Daisy. It's Carey Mulligan and the picture above is from the screen test with Leo DiCaprio. How very cool! Mulligan has shown herself to be a fine and capable actress and I have no doubt she'll fit the role. There's a sweet story about how when she first heard she was cast, she burst into tears. Aww!
Of course, this means I have to read the book, The Great Gatsby now. I can't recall if I ever managed to read it in school. How embarrassing! I shall have to rectify that mistake. Has anyone else read the book?
