Those of old money are accustomed to the stereotypical manners of acting a lady or gentleman, flaunting their money as wish and masking their true self with the ‘ideal’ image of someone wealthy. Tom, Daisy and Jordan are all from old money, and successfully portrayed the stereotype in the passage where Nick is invited for dinner at Tom and Daisy’s luxurious home. In this passage of The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald agrees with this idea and utilizes Nick Carraway, as well as multiple stylistic elements, to narrate and express his opinion of the characters. Nick describes Daisy, Jordan, and Tom as shallow, conceited, and ignorant to their surroundings. In almost every paragraph, imagery can be found in explaining Nick’s opinion towards the characters. For example, when Nick walks through “a high hallway into a bright rosy-colored space.” The “high hallway” represents the hollowness of the couple, while the “bright rosy-colored space” embodied the flaunting of their wealth. In addition, both women wore white, “their dresses… rippling and fluttering.” The color white signified Daisy and Jordan’s innocence and ignorance to the outside world. The rippling and fluttering suggested their constant jump and movement from one social event to the next, always needing to be occupied. Also, when Nick first saw Jordan, the professional golf player, sitting on the couch, she was “completely motionless… as if she were balancing something.” It was as if she needed instruction in order

they appear the viewer directs their attention to the backstory unintentionally listening to the exposition of the story learning more about the characters which Tim Burton shows a lot in his films which shows that it could most likely be part of his style as it is a trend throughout his films.
