Review

There are moments of deep, dangerous darkness in Tom Rob Smith’s brilliant screenplay for this very adult, hugely accomplished drama as we step into two worlds that will soon collide.

Fashion designer Gianni Versace is at the height of his career, while Andrew Cunanan, the man who is plotting his murder, has already killed four men when he arrives in Miami. He’s an unstable, terrifying presence, a fantasist who can’t stop telling stories and is unpredictable and obsessive.

There are echoes of Tom Rob Smith’s London Spy as Cunanan follows Versace (Darren Criss and Edgar Ramirez, both terrific) into Miami’s edgy gay underworld. But Versace returns to his opulent beachfront home, while Cunanan holes up in a rancid, cheap hotel.

The killer is biding his time; the FBI is circling, though, looking in the wrong places as Cunanan plots to ensure everyone in the world will soon know his name.

Summary

Andrew Cunanan, already a wanted man for four murders, arrives in Miami to stalk Gianni Versace. He charms a hotel clerk into giving him a room with a view, and befriends Ronnie. Meanwhile, Donatella Versace attempts to convince her brother to try her designs, a much darker vision than his sunny but possibly old-fashioned styles, and the pair have a competition at his latest fashion show. Elsewhere, Antonio tells Versace that he wants to marry him. Starring Edgar Ramirez, Darren Criss and Penelope Cruz.
