Released:

Rating:
G
Gigi is the popular and acclaimed 1958 musical comedy romance, adapted from the novel by Colette and brought to the screen by movie musical master Vincente Minnelli (The Band Wagon, An American in Paris). It is the story of a young girl (Leslie Caron) in the France of the 1900s. She is being educated to become a courtesan, though she seems blissfully unaware of this, being a tomboy. Her mother is the member of an opera chorus and can only be heard vocalizing; she is basically raised by her grandmother (Hermione Gingold) and Aunt Alicia (Isabel Jeans). Gaston (Louis Jourdan, Swamp Thing) is a wealthy family friend, the nephew of a former lover (Maurice Chevalier) of Gigi's grandmother. He loves to come by the overstuffed apartment and spend time with Gigi and her grandmother, eating and playing cards. When he invites the enthusiastic Gigi somewhere, he doesn't realize the scandal it will cause and that Gigi is, in fact, not a little girl anymore. It's time for an 'arrangement' to be made for her, and her grandmother approaches Gaston, who agrees to take care of her. Gigi, however, has fallen for Gaston, and this isn't her idea of love.moreless
