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 (GLORIA, 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.
“GLORIA BELL pairs perhaps the best portrayer of troubled or lost women with a director who has built a career building stories around them, and the result is a film that comfortably banishes any fears of some neutered U.S. remake...There’s a warm universality here that is absorbing in its own right. It’s an engaging, inventive cover version.” —Gwilym Mumford, The Guardian “GLORIA BELL remains one of the great female-led films of the 21st century, passing the Bechdel test with flying colors—which explains why [Julianne] Moore would be so keen to remake it.” —Peter Debruge, Variety “Yes, GLORIA BELL is nearly a note-for-note remake of Lelio’s own very good GLORIA, but he said in the intro that he wanted to make it to give Julianne Moore this character and this platform. …She is simply perfect throughout GLORIA BELL, embracing this all-too-rare genre of character study about a woman “of a certain age” just trying to navigate her daily existence. It’s a remarkably enjoyable movie, downright cathartic in its presentation of a three-dimensional character who feels like she exists before the movie starts and will continue after, dancing through the night.” —Brian Tallerico, Rogerebert.com
