Lady Gaga enchants as Patrizia Reggiani, the spitfire who marries Gucci heir Maurizio, played by Driver. The duo have terrific chemistry onscreen and are most fun to watch during the couple’s volatile moments.
Leto was unrecognizable as the dolt Gucci heir. He goes full-tilt as the wannabe designer who clearly has a few screws loose in his simpleton mind. Leto provides much-needed laughs at key moments.
The plot will remind one of a True Crime story involving greed, betrayal, and eventually murder. The most surprising part of the entire story is the realization of just how bad of businessmen the Gucci clan were.
Director Ridley Scott had much to work with in the savory story, and audiences will appreciate the glimpse into the two-decade period the movie covers, as he really sinks his teeth into some of the meatier moments.
House Of Gucci will be known for stellar performances by Lady Gaga, Jared Leto and Adam Driver. The film itself is a bit anticlimatic , which felt rushed and disconnected from the rest of the story. Most will be shocked to learn of the hidden inner workings of the Gucci family as a result.
