Live from Cannes: Baz Luhrmann on 'Gatsby's' Festival Opening

Director Baz Luhrmann and producer Catherine Martin talked with THR about The Great Gatsby's opening night spot. The Oscar-nominated director also shared what F. Scott Fitzgerald's granddaughter said she thought about the movie. Luhrmann said Fitzgerald himself was "incredibly modernist -- he took African American street music and put it in there and everyone said, 'Why you doing that jazz? It's a fad.' So we copied that and put popular music."
