Overview

Gloria (Julianne Moore) is a free-spirited divorcée who spends her days at a straight-laced office job and her nights on the dance floor. Long-divorced from her ex-husband Dustin (Brad Garrett) and the recipient of much unsolicited advice from her mother (Holland Taylor) and adult children (Michael Cera and Alanna Ubach), she escapes her mundane daily life by joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles. After meeting Arnold (John Turturro) on a night out, she finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with both the thrills of budding love and the complications of dating, identity and family. It’s a warm, joyous and beautifully understated meditation on romance set to a liberating disco beat.

"Engaging, inventive ... a magnificent, adult vehicle"
— The Guardian
"Moore delivers a signature performance as a rumpled romantic survivor."
— Time Out
"An intimate, aching performance ... Lelio is more mature now than he was when he made the original film, and he brings that experience to the project in small but crucial ways"
— Variety

Why You Should See This Film

Academy Award-winning Chilean director Sebastián Lelio (A Fantastic Woman, Disobedience) here remakes his own acclaimed hit Gloria (2013) with Moore in the lead. Somehow lightning manages to strike twice as the pair create a wonderfully unsentimental and honest riff on the source material, mining new insights about the curious delights of middle age. As Indiewire’s Eric Kohn writes: “Moore’s compassionate performance confirms the strength of the original … More than that, Gloria Bell proves that the best stories can be told endlessly, so long as they’re told well.”
