  • A vibrant Chilean divorce falls for a handsome ex-naval officer, but finds any chance for lasting happiness hinging on her willingness to confront a painful chapter from her past. In the wake of her divorce, 58-year-old Gloria (Paulina Garca) is determined to live her life to the fullest. Her children have all grown up and moved out, so rather than sit home alone, Gloria spends much of her time at local nightclubs and singles parties. Later, just when Gloria has started to realize that her active new lifestyle offers precious little emotional sustenance, she's swept off her feet by a dashing former naval officer in his sixties. Before long she's dreaming of a bright future with him. But true love never comes easy, and before Gloria can enjoy her twilight years with the man who makes her feel truly fulfilled, she must make peace with a harsh truth that could drive him away forever.

  • Critic Reviews
    4 stars out of 5 -- "A vibrant, compassionate study of middle-aged loneliness and romantic yearning, courtesy of Chilean filmmaker Sebastin Lelio."
    Total Film

    4 stars out of 5 -- "The mesmerising Garcia and sensitive direction by Lelio light up this delicate yet spiky drama."

    "With Ms. Garca on hand, it's a mostly convincing celebration of unquenchable energy."
    Wall Street Journal

    "GLORIAis a beautifully judged portrait of loneliness and resilience..." -- Grade: B+
    A.V. Club

    "There is a naturalistic charm to the truth-telling going on in GLORIA, Chilean director Sebastian Lelio's near-perfect film..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "It's a more honest and sexually frank look at romance and loneliness than Hollywood tends to crank out." -- Grade: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    4 stars out of 4 -- "Lelio -- who trusts the viewer to fill in many of the blanks for themselves -- does not judge his characters but allows us to draw our own conclusions."

    "It is to Lelios credit that he steers clear of stereotypes and lets the story unfold organically without judgment or sentimentality. There is an unflinching honesty and intelligence here."
    Chicago Sun-Times
