House of Gucci 2021


The horrific actual story of the family behind the Italian fashion dynasty inspired House of Gucci. When Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga), an outsider from poor circumstances, marries into the Gucci family, her unfettered ambition begins to destroy the family tradition, setting off a dangerous cycle of betrayal, decadence, retribution, and, eventually, murder.


House of Gucci is a crowd-pleasing journey from the Milanese party scene of the 1970s to a high-profile, end-of-the-century trial, adapted by screenwriters Becky Johnston and Roberto Bentivegna from Sara Gay Forden's factual book. The failed romance between Patrizia and Maurizio Gucci is at its center, with the latter played by cinema's sexy nerd of the moment, Adam Driver, beneath elegantly studious glasses. "I'm interested in seeing how this story develops," Patrizia says as she embarks on a twisted fairytale affair with Guccio Gucci's grandson that begins with masked balls and talk of midnight chimes and pumpkins and ends with family backstabbings, jealous rages, and deadly conflicts.

All all operatic passion at first, as Patrizia scrawls her number in lipstick on Maurizio's scooter's windscreen. It's a startling image: him, a geek on two wheels, and she, a high-wire circus act unicycling across the dynastic wealth's big tent. Patrizia may not know the difference between a Klimt and a Picasso, but she's a classier version of Nomi from Paul Verhoeven's Showgirls.
