The Post-Gazette reviews movies from a family perspective:
'The Great Gatsby'
Suitable for: Teens and above.
What you should know: Baz Luhrmann, whose movies include "Moulin Rouge," directed this big-screen version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire and is available in 3-D (which may prove overwhelming or simply unnecessary for some moviegoers) and less expensive, conventional 2-D.
Language: A couple of uses of profanity and a handful of mild four-letter words along with a couple of ethnic or racial insults.
Sexual situations and nudity: Kissing, plus sounds of sex from a nearby room. A couple of extramarital affairs are key to the story.
Violence/scary situations: Someone is struck and killed by a car. A man is shot to death and shown in a casket, and another commits suicide off screen. A man slaps a woman and men nearly come to blows. In addition to reckless driving, there are references or brief flashbacks to World War I and the fact that a character is in a sanitarium when the movie opens.
Alcohol and drug use: The alcohol, legal or not, flows freely throughout the movie.
