Adam Driver and Lady Gaga (born Stefani Germanotta) portray the role of Mr. and Mrs. Gucci (Maurizio Gucci and Patrizia Reggiani) in director Ridley Scott’s campy Oscar hopeful, House of Gucci. The trailer tells a story of ‘money, family, power, betrayal, loyalty, scandal, ambition, and murder’.
House of Gucci, based on Sara Gay Forden’s book 'The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed,' details the story of Maurizio’s assassination.
Lady Gaga shines as the mysterious and rather intimidating socialite in her second film after The Star is Born. Patrizia Reggiani (played by Gaga) was tried and convicted of orchestrating the assassination of her ex-husband Maurizio who was also the former head of Gucci.
“I don’t consider myself to be a particularly ethical person. But I am fair,” Patrizia says in the trailer, with a heavy Italian accent.
Judging by the trailer, the trial would be a major plot point but the films seems to include the couple’s wedding, their time together, and the iconic Gucci family dynasty’s rise and fall. The film boasts of an star-studded cast including Jared Leto, Salma Hayek, and Jeremy Irons.
