Gloria Bell Rated 15

Gloria Bell

Dir. Sebastián Lelio. USA, 2018. 1h 42m. Starring Julianne Moore, John Turturro, Michael Cera, Sean Astin, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Alanna Ubach.

Recently divorced and looking for a new lease of life, straight-laced, middle-aged office worker Gloria hits the LA club-scene searching for a new romance. A sophisticated romantic comedy starring open-hearted and nuanced performances from Julianne Moore and John Turturro. An English-language remake of his own original feature from 2013 by Oscar-winning Chilean auteur Sebastián Lelio (A Fantastic Woman, Disobedience).

‘There is a terrific performance here from Moore, and an equally good one from Turturro, who may be entering into his own golden years of bittersweet character work.’ ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘The thumping heart of all of it is Moore, whose magnetically watchable, fully inhabited, offhandedly sexy performance makes Gloria Bell's reflective longueurs shimmer…’ ★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
