House of Gucci is an upcoming Ridley Scott biographical crime drama based on the high-profile murder of Maurizio Gucci, fashion magnate, the then head of fashion house Gucci. The high-end fashion brand has forever dazzled eyes with luxe and opulence – House of Gucci tempts to infuse the same essence!
The movie is based on the 2001 book by Sara Gay Forden – House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed. This movie explores the events leading to the murder of Maurizio Gucci by his ex-wife and its highly publicized aftermath.
Maurizio was the last of the Gucci family dynasty to run the fashion house. In addition to being a murder mystery, House of Gucci is also a tragic love story. Maurizio Gucci and Patrizia Reggiani married in 1973. They separated in 1985, followed by Maurizio leaving Patrizia for a younger woman. In 1995, a hitman shot Maurizio fatally outside his office as he arrived for work. He also shot the building’s doorman Giuseppe Onorato, but Giuseppe didn’t succumb. Patrizia was an immediate suspect in the case. In 1998, she was convicted of hiring four accomplices to carry out the execution of Maurizio.
House of Gucci attempts to provide a deeper insight into this event.
Along with the most enticing storyline, this film features a star-studded cast promising a rewarding watch. This film features Lady Gaga and Adam Driver portraying Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci. Lady Gaga has made her mark in the film industry already with a noteworthy performance in A Star Is Born. If the trailer is anything to go by, Lady Gaga has already won hearts for doing justice to the role!
