When Patrizia Reggiani, an outsider from humble beginnings, marries into the Gucci family, her unbridled ambition begins to unravel their legacy and triggers a reckless spiral of betrayal, decadence, revenge, and ultimately...murder.
A legacy worth killing for.
Overly long and absurd, this movie is based on a true story. It follows the family behind fashion brand Gucci, their eccentricities, back-stabbing, poor decisions and eventual downfall. It's well produced, with everyone dressed to the nines throughout, but the end product is lacking any sparkle. It falls into a middle ground between satirical comedy and serious drama, but even with Ridley Scott's talent, it doesn't work.
Adam Driver's presence is felt in every scene, with his quiet demeanour. Jared Leto is unrecognisable and the movie is filled with recognisable cast names including Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Lady Gaga and Salma Hayek.
