Critics reviews

Gia lived a life of toxic glamour—she is remembered as incredibly beautiful, setting the precedent for supermodels to come, but also for her addiction to heroin, which resulted in the destruction of her career and ultimately her health. By interweaving the personal narrative of her diaries with scenes of her experiences as a model, girlfriend and daughter, Cristofer’s biopic attempts to capture the complexities of Gia’s beauty, as well as her life.
