Details

An intelligent, divorced woman in her late 50s, Gloria (García) is independent but looking for company. Preferring dance clubs to sitting at home in her Santiago flat, one night she meets Rudolfo, a soft-spoken, recent divorcé. As a relationship develops between them, Gloria is confronted with Rudolfo’s dependence on his ex-wife and children.

A compelling central performance from Paulina García, winner of the Best Actress Award at the Berlin Film Festival, and a well-written storyline makes this a compassionate but never sentimental character study. Gloria is a rare gem, a satisfyingly mature look at middle age.

“A gently humorous melodrama that’s refreshingly grownup.” The Hollywood Reporter
