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, 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 joys of budding love and the complications of dating, identity, and family.
From Academy Award-winning director Sebastián Lelio (A Fantastic Woman, Disobedience) comes a sophisticated romantic comedy that shows love can strike at any time, relationships are never simple, and nothing can get you down as long as you keep dancing.
Chile | USA, 2018, 102 minutes, Rated R, Directed by Sebastián Lelio
“One of the greatest female-led films of the 21st century. Moore is great, but Turturro is a revelation…”– Peter Debruge, VARIETY
“Lelio bathes his female subjects in a kind of tender, full-fledged humanity that other auteurs, let alone mainstream Hollywood, rarely touches. Moore—vulnerable but undauntable—lives every moment in [Gloria’s] skin, fantastic to the last glorious frame. Grade: A-“– Leah Greenblatt, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
