The Beautiful and Damned

Рейтинг: 
The victor belongs to the spoils. Anthony and Gloria Patch are the bright lights of the 1920s New York smart set and lead a life of luxury, idleness and indulgence. But Jazz Age glamour comes at a price and, with Anthony's inheritance uncertain, the couple's decadent lifestyle begins to fall apart. Anthony is unable to hold down a job, and the couple descend into alcoholism and depression as their finances and marriage collapse. Fitzgerald's captivating tale of squandered talent is the classic account of the so-called Lost Generation.
