Gloria Bell the latest from Chilean director Sebastián Lelio, is a remake of his 2013 award-winning Gloria only the action has been transplanted from Santiago to Los Angeles. Julianne Moore reportedly contacted Lelio keen to star in the remake and it is a triumph for her playing the titular character, a fifty-something divorcee negotiating the choppy waters of pre-retirement life. Gloria (Julianne Moore) spends her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles and soon finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with the joys of budding love and the complications of dating.
“If the world blows up, I hope I go down dancing,” says Gloria. You can’t leave Lelio’s funny, touching and vital film without hoping Gloria’s wish will come triumphantly true.
