Leonardo is dashing as The Great Gatsby

This adaptation of F.Scott Fitzgerald’s classic is anticipated by literature fans in the same way its chief protagonist Jay Gatsby lusts after the unattainable object of his affections is in the novel.

Their longed for union turns out to be a tragic disappointment, but from the looks of things, this sumptuous film will be anything but.

A beautiful Sydney Summer is providing the backdrop for a floral wonderland of a set at the city’s Centennial Park, which has been dressed up to represent New York’s Long Island 86 years ago.

Gatsby, who it is suggested has made his fortune through bootlegging and other black market means, appears to be enjoying a garden party with 26-year-old Carey’s flapper girl.

Tobey Maguire, 36 , who plays the novel’s narrator Nick Carraway, can be spied over the beautiful lavender flowers, too.
