This year’s foreign-language Oscar winner – Sebastian Lelio, returns with a remake of his breakthrough, transporting the eponymous Gloria to Los Angeles and casting the inimitable Julianne Moore to play her.Gloria adores her adult children, but she's interested in being more than a grandmother. She loves to spend her evenings dancing in singles clubs, hoping to meet Mr. Right. It all seems to be falling into place when she meets the recently divorced Arnold, who falls for her bright smile and sees the beauty behind her oversized glasses. But Arnold's ex-wife and grown-up daughters have an unhealthy hold on him, and it seems he doesn't know how to let go of the past.Drawing dazzling energy from his new cast and locations, Lelio follows Gloria as she navigates midlife romance and figures out what she truly wants. While we can all sympathize with Arnold – and Turturro has never been more comically vulnerable — it's Gloria we're always rooting for. Moore's take on the character is a fresh revelation: while maintaining Gloria's feisty spirit and eagerness to connect, she discovers just how satisfying it can be to dance alone.
