Here’s what the press is saying about Gatsby in Connecticut


One of the Best Movies of the Year!

The New Yorker


From the September 1, 2020 review: “In its hearty and individualistic vigor, “Gatsby in Connecticut” is a valuable work of literary criticism in cinematic form.”

The New Yorker


“Finding the backdrop of ‘Gatsby’ in Connecticut, not Long Island.”

The New York Times


“Driven by the same sense of wonder, erudition, eloquence, and brevity that were the guiding forces behind Fitzgerald’s work, Robert Steven Williams impassioned and succinct ode to the author has charm to spare.”

Film Threat


“Cover feature article for appearance at the Garden State Film Festival in Asbury Park.”

New Jersey Stage


“Astonishing.”

Paperblanks


“I’m convinced they are correct and that Gatsby is yet another example of a novelist’s creative ‘topographical transfusion’ (in this case from Westport to West Egg),” Charles Scribner III said.

Town & Country


“It’s just interesting to me how one scholar had so much sway. He sort of squashed the theory of Westport,” Professor Maureen Corrigan of Georgetown University said. “I think they’ve done a real service in reviving this.”

Newsday 


“Meet the man that may have inspired  F. Scott Fitzgerald to write The Great Gatsby.”
