The roaring twenties was the period known for its exuberant, overwhelming and free pop culture of all time. F.

Daisy is in love with money, ease, and material luxury, all things a rich Southern Belle grows up with. After her marriage to Tom, she is whisked away to the east, the symbol of 'old money' and corruption of America. Here she becomes more comfortable in she and her husband's abundant assets and allows the corruption of the east to take her over- she becomes reckless and even more materialistic.
