Strong Female Lead presents: Gia
Sep 20, 2013 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm| Free
Angelina Jolie stars in this HBO production as Gia Carangi- a supermodel. She was one of the first famous women to die from AIDS. Jolie perfectly channels Gia’s wild nature & brutal sensitivity. The story is sad and fascinating–she rose quickly to the top of the fashion world with the direction of Wilhelmina Cooper (Faye Dunaway), but Gia was vulnerable, and even after so much success, she still ached for what could not be replaced with heroin–unconditional love. Mercedes Ruehl costars as Gia’s mother.
A GIA-themed drawing & lock of hair will be prized off after the screening.
