3 men rob a place. Hayden's killed, Johnny's wounded and does 5 years prison and Patty leaves with the money. He sees Hayden's sister/A.Jolie. When released, Johnny goes straight and wants a boxing career.
When Gia Carangi first arrives in New York City, she's a beautiful drop-out from Philadelphia brashly bursting through the closed doors of top modeling agent Wilhelmina Cooper. Gia's electrifying personality and potent sexuality soon find their way onto the covers of America's top-selling magazines. But being loved by the world isn't the same as being love by one - an unfulfilled desire that can take Gia dangerous places. And for a beautiful woman, one slip could lead to an untimely and terrifying downfall.Written by

Around the 1:46:00 mark, when T.J. is trying to convince Kathleen to take Gia home with her from the hospital after she was diagnosed with AIDS, a woman can be heard on the PA system paging "Dr. Blair, Dr. Blair... Dr. Jay Hamilton, Dr. Jay Hamilton." This audio is from, or at least used in, the song "I Remember Now," the first track off Queensrÿche's 1988 album "Operation: Mindcrime." See more »

Gia's a great biographic film with a credible story, great cast and great presentation. Angelina Jolie's performance here is nothing less than incredible, in fact there was a short time when I thought she's really Gia herself and that she's really troubled...that's how convincing her act is. Mercedes R makes a great support role...and a mother as well.
There are so many things to learn here, like how fashion was in the 1970's and 1980's, Gia's lesbian crave, the drugs and the AIDS. The film is so realistic, you'll really care for the people and the events that unfold.
Definitely a must-view!
