Synopsis

Beautiful Fools imagines the relationship between F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald; a lyrical portrayal of an intense romance that ultimately destroyed them. Their standing as one of America's most debonair couples is tarnished by alcoholism, debt and Zelda's increasing instability. But they endure, both unaware that Scott's sudden death will soon end their love story once and for all. As Baz Luhrmann's new film adaptation of The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, comes to the big screen in Summer 2013, R. Clifton Spargo gives us a touching vision of the Fitzgeralds' marriage and the man responsible for one of the greatest classics of the 20th century.
