Illinois Central College’s “Between the Lines” program presents “A Moviegoer’s Paradise: Glitz, Glam, and Fitzgerald’s Gatsby”

Illinois Central College’s “Between the Lines” Program kicks off its fall 2013 season with “A Moviegoer’s Paradise: Glitz, Glam, and Fitzgerald’s Gatsby” on Tuesday, September 3, at 7 pm in Cedar Hall Room 134 on the North Campus.

This presentation will compare and contrast F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby with Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 film version. ICC  faculty members Margot Vance and Jen Richrath will facilitate a discussion on whether or not the film lives up to the message, themes and general essence of the original novel and will compare and contrast characteristics between society of the 1920’s and of today.
