THE HOUSE OF GUCCI (MA) – 8:15PM, Sun 2nd to Wed 5th
Ridley Scott (Thelma & Louise, The Last Duel) directs an extravagant high-camp all-star melodrama based on a shocking true story that almost destroyed the famed fashion brand.
Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga, in an awards-worthy performance) meets the quietly spoken Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver) at a party, causing her to set her romantic sights on the fashion brand heir. Facing animosity in the form of Maurizio’s father Rodolfo (Jeremy Irons), her aspirations to join Italian high society seem doomed until her husband’s uncle Aldo (Al Pacino) take pity on the couple. Co-starring an unrecognisable Jared Leto (as Paolo Gucci), Salma Hayek and Jack Huston, House Of Gucci is an epic crime drama of betrayal, decadence and revenge.
RED ROCKET (MA) -8:15PM, Thu 6th to Sat 8th
From director Sean Baker and starring Simon Rex, Bree Elrod and Suzanna Son.
The film world was buzzing after the premiere of Sean Baker’s Red Rocket at the Cannes Film Festival in July, and soon, everyone will be able to watch the critically acclaimed dramedy when it hits Luna’s screens on January 6. The upcoming feature comes from the mind of The Florida Project director Sean Baker and stars actor, comedian, and rapper Simon Rex as a former adult film star trying to make a fresh start when he returns to his Texas hometown. Simon Rex gives a magnetic, live-wire performance in a darkly, funny and humane portrait of a uniquely American hustler and a hometown that barely tolerates him.
