“Father, son and house of Gucci”: Has Lady Gaga ever spoken more iconic words?
Ridley Scott’s “House of Gucci” Star-Spangled Trailer, ” in theaters on November 24, promises a lot of greed, deception and, of course, murder. But the public also had to unravel the real-life mystery surrounding the trendy family. The film is already in sight for the awards season buzz as Adam Driver and Gaga appear to be a match made in Oscar paradise following the critically acclaimed films “Marriage Story” and “A Star Is Born”, and coupled with performances by unrecognizable Oscar-winning Jared Leto, Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons. Golden Globe-winning star Salma Hayek completes the cast, alongside Camille Cottin, Jack Huston and Reeve Carney.
Based on Sarah Gay Gorden’s book, “The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamor, and Greed”, the film follows Patrizia Reggiani (Gaga) who was convicted of organizing the assassination of her ex-husband and former boss of the Gucci fashion house, Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver). Roberto Bentivegna wrote the screenplay, with Scott as director and producer.
Beneath the lush furs, infamous Gucci prints and thick faux Italian accents, “House of Gucci” presents two mysteries: Reggiani’s motive for crime and what really happened in real life. The crime biopic has once been called a “kitsch, funny and tragic tragedy, like a high-end soap opera” by cinematographer Dariusz Wolski, as he described it in April.
The first photos of the film sparked a debate from Patrizia Gucci, the great-granddaughter of the founder of the Guccio Gucci house, on the accuracy of the project. “We are really disappointed. I speak on behalf of the family, ”Gucci said. “They steal a family’s identity to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system,” Gucci told The Associated Press. “Our family has an identity, a private life. We can talk about everything. But there is a border that cannot be crossed.
Director / producer Scott made “House of Gucci” in cooperation with fashion house Gucci, which the Gucci family sold in 1993. The brand gave Scott’s production access to their wardrobe archives for the design of costumes and accessories. So while fashion may be accurate, what is the real story behind the Gucci drama?
