From the Oscar-nominated producers of NO, critically-acclaimed Gloria stars Silver Bear Best Actress winner Paulina Garcia as a 50-something divorcee in this inspiring, contemporary comedy-drama about loneliness, self-discovery, relationships, love and female independence. As she fills her nights seeking love in ballrooms and making a party out of her solitude, Gloria’s fragile happiness changes the day she meets Rodolfo (Hernandez) who leaves her dancing between hope and despair. Can she find the strength to realise that all life’s lessons will leave her shining brighter?
“Equal parts warm and wise, Gloria is an invigorating story of female agency that will have you rooting for its leading lady from start to finish.” Simran Hans – Film 4
