Redford or DiCaprio?

This weekend we are going to see the Great Gatsby. I’m wondering how different DiCaprio will play Gatsby versus Robert Redford. Redford is close to eighty; so this remake is a long time coming.

My daughter Lilly saw it the other night at a special screening and she emailed me the following about her evening. Wish I had been invited!  She wrote, “As an elite member of “The Gilt Groupe” I was treated as a V.I.P. this past Wednesday evening at a premiere screening of “The Great Gatsby.” If you don’t know what The Gilt Groupe is, you are in for a treat.

Gilt provides their members with today’s top designer labels at up to a 60% off retail. Becoming a member is free and you are notified daily of deals on apparel and accessories for women, men, kids and home goods as well as exclusive local happenings and events and one-of-a-kind travel packages.

Gilt is currently expanding their market and trying to establish a more visible presence in the Atlanta area. I was one of the lucky ones and was treated to a ticket to an exclusive advance screening of “The Great Gatsby”. It was a private pre-screening preceded by a wine and beer reception.  I was instructed to wear a Gatsby themed costume and maybe win a prize.

Unfortunately, I came straight from work, so didn’t have the opportunity to get a costume together; but many people went all out! First, second and third place winners all received prizes which I believe included a gift certificate to a local spa. It was an all-around wonderful experience. The screening took place at one of my favorite theaters ( lazy boy recliners) and the movie was in 3D.  Between the movie, a little libation and sitting and visiting with a great friend, the event was a great ‘hump day treat”. Thank you to the Gilt Groupe.
