Trivia

It took lots of lighting, Scotch tape, makeup, prosthetics and two wigs for brunette Gina Gershon to transform to Donatella Versace. Gina Gershon lost 11 pounds to achieve that super-skinny Versace look and had to smoke those incessant cigarettes Donatella loves. Gina watched tons of French video to learn how Donatella moves--hips forward, shoulders in & neck out. A speech therapist helped Gershon to achieve that accent. See more »

Interesting if too much about Donatella and not enough about Gianni
9 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is more about Donatella than Gianni glossing over the murder and the life of Gianni but showing Donatella's meltdown and comeback. It's entertaining enough but maybe the focus could have been a bit more on before the death. The fashion shows and creative process are quite high energy.

Gina Gershon gives a good performance even if her figure is much too beautiful than the subject. Almost any actress would be way better looking than Donatella but she captures the essence with the lips and blonde hair. Enrico from Veronica Mars looks like Gianni.

Worth one watch.
