This was just suppose to be a random movie to watch and to waste some time, but did I hit gold or what?

This movie is about one of the first top models Gia Marie Carangi who was one of the first women to die from AIDS. Gia attitude was 'take shit from noone' and this was what the model business wanted at the time. She was a street kid with a beautiful look and wild personality and seemed very strong but the truth was another. She was really very vounerable and phobic of being alone trying to fill the void with work, women (she was a lesbian) and drugs which eventually led her to injecting herself with infected needles which lead to her death of AIDS at the age of 26 in 1986. This movie is capturing her life from a kid abandoned by her mother to great success to decline and ultimately death.

I have always wondered why and how Angelina Jolie got to become such a superstar. I mean I've seen her in some pretty good movies but it was like, one second she wasn't there and then she was one of the biggest stars.

I understand now, this is the movie that made her big. The other actors in this movie are great as well but Angelina Jolie is simply excellent.

commentYes she appeared in Hackers before Gia, and some people noticed her...but come on, that role is not award winning or especially challenging. Gia on the other hand...
