Movie Monday: House of Versace

Movie Monday is a weekly feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.

This week, I want to talk about:

House of Versace

This TV Movie, based on the book House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder, and Survival by Deborah Ball, follows the life of Donatella Versace and the destiny of House of Versace.

The story begins with the time period when Gianni Versace was still alive, the business was successful and Versace was a premium house.

We can follow Donatella and her brother leading this brand, see their family dinners and watch how their brother/sister relationship was.

Since this movie captures time period from that glowing era until now, we also see Donatella’s reaction to her brother’s murder, the fall of the Versace house, the fail of Donatella as a mother and wife, her problems with drugs and alcohol, her cleaning at rehab and how House of Versace rised from ashes.

This movie was suprisingly good, especially when you know that it is a TV movie.
I enjoyed every minute while watching it and it felt like the end came too soon.

Gina Gershon, who played Donatella was really good and, to be honest, I didn’t even recognize it was her who played the part.

Fashion, parties, greeding, family drama… you say it, this movie probably has it.

If you wonder where can you watch this, right now it is avalible on HBO OnDemand.

      1. yes, but the key factor why I don’t intend to read the book is because I am just not that interesting in this story. I know everything from this movie that I want to know…
        There’s so many non.fiction books I actually want to read instead…
        I mean, you knw how it goes, tbr is just too big (in my case I had to make peace fith the fact that I’ll never manage to read every book I want to read, in my life.

      1. It was really interesting – I felt like eveyrthing moved too quickly though – especially her stint in rehab – I would have liked to see more of that! but then again, I was half asleep when I watched it (it went on from11 to 1 or something?? xD )
