Story


Based on Wall Street Journal reporter Deborah Ball's widely-read book House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder, and Survival, the movie brings to light the story of Donatella Versace (Gina Gershon), who, following the brazen murder of her brother, world-renowned designer Gianni Versace (Enrico Colantoni) at the height of his success, is suddenly thrust into the spotlight as head designer of his fashion empire. At first ridiculed by critics worldwide, Donatella falls victim to drug addiction and nearly bankrupts the company. With the help of her family, including daughter Allegra, Aunt Lucia (Raquel Welch) and brother Santo (Colm Feore), she enters rehab to confront her demons and soon comes back stronger than ever to re-ignite the beloved Versace brand with her own vision and builds one of the most powerful and influential fashion houses ever known.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's a mass-market knockoff of a luxury brand, not even as chillingly melodramatic as the typical Lifetime movie, dragged down by comically huge jumps in narrative and downright dismal dialogue..”
by Jon Caramanica [NY Times]
“..is a gilded guilt fest certain to leave viewers with 24-karat regret..”
by Laura Fries [Variety]
