Film Roaring Twenties
Hello everyone,
I hope you are having a good day. Here in Italy we �ve got a sunny but cold day in the mountains ... just right for this time of year :-)
Now I would have a question concerning films. I am teaching the Roaring Twenties and would like to show a film to my class. Unfortunately, the only one which comes to my mind is "The Great Gatsby" with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. I don �t really like this movie, so I would be REALLY grateful for some other suggestions. Thanks for your posts in advance.
Lots of greatings from well once again the Italian Alps <3
