The movie’s original trailer showed off its A-list cast’s incredible transformations—especially a totally unrecognizable Leto!—while promising a scintillating cinematic thrill ride filled with “money, family, power, betrayal, sex, loyalty, scandal, ambition”… and “murder!”
Is House of Gucci based on a true story?
Yes. The movie is based on Sara Gay Forden’s book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour and Greed, which is described as the “sensational true story of murder, madness, glamour, and greed that shook the Gucci dynasty.”
What happened to Maurizio Gucci?
Maurizio, the grandson of Gucci founder Guccio Gucci, left his wife Patrizia, whom he wed in 1972, for a younger woman in 1985. Ten years later, in 1995, the Italian businessman was gunned down outside of his office in Milan.
Patrizia was convicted in 1998 of ordering Maurizio’s murder and was sentenced to 29 years in prison. In 2004, Vogue UK reported that her daughters Alessandra and Allegra insisted that their mother “was not in command of her mental faculties at the time of the murder” claiming that Patrizia had surgery to remove a brain tumor in 1992, which “affected her ability to reason.”
Patrizia ended up serving 18 years in prison, before being released in 2016.
When asked by a reporter why she hired a hitman and didn’t shoot Maurizio herself, Patrizia reportedly answered (via The Guardian), “My eyesight is not so good,” adding, “I didn’t want to miss.”
