I could just scream with excitement. We are so very close to the release of Great Gatsby in movie theaters, May 10th to be exact. I have such high hopes for this movie. Once again Leonardo DiCaprio will be teaming up with Baz Luhrmann. Their first movie together, Romeo and Juliet, was the be-all and end-all of my teenage years. I first watched this movie in the theater with my at-the-moment boyfriend and some friends. When it was finished I was amazed, but my boyfriend `just didn`t get all of the Shakespeare`, I then knew he was not a keeper. A few months later I purchased a copy of the movie when I was studying in Mexico and I must have watched it 50 times. The costuming, the soundtrack, the characters, everything was monumental. And then there was Leo sputtering romantic lines with his smooth skin and blue eyes – I was Seventeen and captivated.
Coincidentally I was also about Seventeen the first time I read the novel The Great Gatsby in English Lit class. It has to be one of my top ten favorite novels. Baz Luhrmann is the perfect director for this movie. There will be lavish, larger than life, parties. There will be wild and over the top characters. The costumes will be amazing, I absolutely love 1920`s inspired clothing – once you are done looking at the free fonts scroll down to see two of my FAVORITE 1920`s inspired dress tutorials. So to celebrate the release of this movie, I have rounded up some fun (free) fonts for you, I hope you enjoy them!
