Viewers and critics are loving the latest release family and fashion drama House of Gucci. While we all know Gucci the fashion brand, the once-powerful family behind the story is even more interesting. With that being said, Ridley Scott’s new film portrays the family drama and the betrayal story of the Italian family that changed everything we know about the Gucci brand today. While the movie travels through occasional dullness, long runtime, and a choppy story, it includes some incredible performances as well, especially by Lady Gaga.
With that being said, if one liked House of Gucci, here are 5 other similar movies –

Disney recently reinvented Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations. With that said, Cruella (2021) follows Estella who adopts the persona of Cruella to vengeance against none another than the Baroness.

In the 2014 released movie, a girl named Amy Dunne goes missing and as the media discovers more about her life and her marriage, her husband, Nick Dunne, becomes the prime suspect. However, the plot goes completely different from what it looked like in the beginning. Talking about Gone Girl’s similarity with House of Gucci, Amy Dunne was indeed a headstrong personality, and quite ambitious, just like Patrizia Reggiani. However, Dunne reflected more layers and sensibility when it comes to the wicked characterization.
All Good Things
2010 released, All Good Things, have most similar scenes when compared with House of Gucci and its biological influence. Precisely there are quite some similarities between both the films in terms of the plot and the characterization. While All Good Things have had some flaws during its execution, the masterful acting from Frank Langella, Ryan Gosling, and Kirsten Dunst overlapped all.
