About Gloria Bell
Official Description: A free-spirited woman in her 50s seeks out love at L.A. dance clubs.
Gloria Bell is based on Gloria, a 2012 film written and directed by Sebastián Lelio who returns for the reimagining. As Lelio puts it, “It’s going to be like jazz, you’ll feel the spirit of the original story, but it’ll be re-invigorated …” The original film received rave reviews, so much so that Moore and others came calling about this new version. Moore is only the tip of the casting iceberg that includes plenty of notable talent.

What’s not to like here? The cast is incredible, and the story looks fun. Julianne Moore is one of the best actresses of this generation (#ChangeMyMind) and from the looks of the trailer Gloria Bell will give her a playground of emotions to play with as the title character. If Rotten Tomatoes means anything to you, the film currently holds a 100% fresh rating (based on 14 reviews). All signs point to a quality film that looks like it’s getting a release date smack dab in blockbuster territory as a bit of counter-programming. Smart move or cinematic suicide? You decide!
