“Tom Buchanan was
meant to have this cruel body. He was supposed to be an athlete almost bursting
out of his clothes, so [Joel Edgerton’s] shirts were always a little too tight
to help feel his physicality. And then you had the aesthete slim-line Leo,
where everything is immaculate and immaculately tailored."
– "The Great Gatsby” costume designer Catherine Martin

Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther… And one fine morning-
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
