GIA - Film Review

GIA - Film Review

Recently i watched few great movie. One of my favourite-GIA, starring Angelina Jolie as Gia Marie Carangi.

Part of it are facts. before making this movie they did alot of research. somehow people (which include Gia Carangi's mom) thinks that it's not accurate at all.

Back to the movie..i think angelina jolie bring out the character really well. it's the first time i see angelina jolie without a gun, without a strong self-confidence character. in this movie, she looks strong, afraid of nothing, inside her soul, what she see is just darknest, with a broken family that weakened her.

this movie shows us the reality of the modelling industry. you come when you're needed. and leave the industry when you're not. this is business. what a famous cover girl looks like...might not be what it seems to be..People see them as angels, luckiest girl in the world, glamour, fame, they can have anything in their life..but who knows what they really are??

Eric Michael Cole as T.J and Angelina Jolie as GIA

Angelina as GIA after start taking drugs

In case you don't know who's Gia's some information and pictures of hers.
Gia Marie Carangi (January 29, 1960 – November 18, 1986)
This is Gia Carangi. She was claim the first American Top Model during late 1970s and early 1980s. she has appeared in the cover of several fashion magazine. She was the first to present unusual poses, expression and gesture.

After become addicted to drugs, Carangi's modelling career was ruined. Infected with HIV (AIDS) and died in the age of 26.

Here are some almost similar pictures/scene you can see from the movie and reality life.
