If you want to see A-listers go to Fulham: ‘House of Gucci’

Director Ridley Scott’s elegant combination of “dynasty” soapiness and “successor” era absurdity captures three tumultuous decades of Gucci Fashion House. Aspiring young Italian woman Patricia Reggiani (Gaga) is married to law student Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver) and manipulates him to gain power in his family’s top company. There is also a plot of treachery, stabbing, and murder in the supporting cast (Al Pacino, Jared Leto, and Jeremy Irons) or in an entertaining film lacking in over-the-top satire.
