After three years, Lady Gaga is finally coming back to the big screen. House of Gucci is a Roberto Bentivegna original film. And based on the Sarah Gay Gorden book with the same title. Director Ridley Scott is now redesigning the concept of the film, putting Lady Gaga on track in the race for the Oscars.
In House of Gucci, Lady Gaga is reprising the role of Patrizia Reggiani, who got convicted by orchestrating the murder of her husband Maurizio Gucci, played by Adam Driver in 1998.
Moreover, the film presents every theme possible. These themes vary from betrayal, great fashion, and beautiful Italian landmarks, as well as Gaga’s comical Italian accent.
“It was a name that sounded so sweet, so seductive- synonymous with wealth, style, power”, narrates the award-winning actress in the trailer.
House of Gucci has an epic ensemble cast from amazing couture regalia. This includes a feature of staggering FX makeup; Al Pacino as Aldo Gucci wearing a fat suit, Jared Leto as Paolo Gucci, and many more.
Despite having full cooperation from the Gucci fashion house, the family itself has not had ownership since 1993.
Furthermore, the great-granddaughter of the founder, Guccio Gucci, released a statement bashing the film.
“We are truly disappointed. I speak on behalf of the family,” said the great-granddaughter Patrizia Gucci. “They are stealing the identity of a family to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system…. Our family has an identity, privacy. We can talk about everything. But there is a line that its purpose is to not be crossed.”
The production team had access to Gucci’s extensive wardrobe archives for costume design and props.
Also, House of Gucci will be in theaters on November 24th.
