Kobe deftly pays homage to Fitzgerald's original work while drawing focus to the timeless nature of a story seated in change and redemption. Fans of Babylon Revisited will likely enjoy the resonance of key, familiar lines echoing and alive still across time. There are also subtle echoes of Fitzgerald's visualized and imagined Paris in the film's modern-day Las Vegas setting, especially as Charlie moves across the lights and emptiness of the Las Vegas landscape in reflections and flashbacks.
