Tom, Daisy, and Jordan are all cut from a similar cloth, a very expensive cloth. They are superficial vacuous people that care for nobody but himself or herself. They spend and drink their way through life without having any real substantial relationships. Tom has affairs, Daisy barely acknowledges that she has a daughter, and Jordan derives any identity she has from playing golf and attending lavish parties.
