Synopsis

Director Vincente Minnelli and producer Arthur Freed capped the success of their earlier hits 'Meet Me in St Louis' and 'An American in Paris' with this lavish musical adaptation of Colette's famous novel. Gigi (Leslie Caron), an innocent French girl, finds herself being trained as a courtesan so that she can become the mistress of Gaston Lachaille (Louis Jourdan), a family friend and heir to a sugar fortune. However, when Gaston actually falls in love with the young Gigi he complicates a long-standing family tradition and throws their whole social circle into a flap. The film won nine Oscars: Best Picture, Director, Cinematography, Editor, Set Design, Screenplay, Costumes, Score and Song.

Contains mild sex references.
