Why does this story matter?
House of Gucci is based on author Sara Gay Forden's book titled The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed. It revolves around the murder of Maurizio Gucci—an Italian businessman and fashion trailblazer—orchestrated by his ex-wife. It was released in the US in November 2021. Now, this highly-anticipated film is reportedly set to stream on Prime Video in India.
The thrilling film highlights scandals of the Gucci family
Maurizio—the heir to the Gucci fashion house—falls in love with Patrizia Reggiani, a young and beautiful office manager. The two get married but the romance fades off when things take an ugly turn after the marriage. Reggiani starts to discover the many lies and scandals that the Gucci family was involved in. The story behind uncovering the truth results in betrayal and even murder.
Here's what the trailer showed us
The trailer, released last year, opens with singer Lady Gaga (Reggiani) describing the Gucci family's extravagant lifestyle. "It was a name that sounded so sweet, so seductive, synonymous with worth, style, power, but that name was a curse, too," she says. The trailer shows Reggiani advising Maurizio to not mix family with business. We also see glimpses of scandals the family was involved in.
