Chilean director Sebastián Lelio’s Spanish language hit Gloria is reborn as an English language indie with Julianne Moore in the lead role. The English version is called Gloria Bell.
Divorced 50-something Gloria embraces her freedom by spending her nights in LA dance clubs, where she meets Arnold (John Turturro).
Also appearing in Gloria Bell are Alanna Ubach, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Sean Astin, Michael Cera, Brad Garrett, Holland Taylor, and Rita Wilson.
The trailer shows Gloria Bell going through the joys of new love as well as the complications of it. Love does not always run smoothly, no matter the age of the lovers.
Gloria also seems to have a wonderful circle of friends, which I’m looking forward to learning more about. It isn’t just a love story, which is good. We get to know something about Gloria as a person. I’m sure Julianne Moore will make her as brilliant and vivid as she always does the characters she plays.
Gloria Bell is scheduled for release in March 2019.
You can watch the original Gloria in Spanish on Amazon (Gloria (English Subtitled)) or YouTube. The original version stars best actress award winner Paulina Garcia. If you watch the trailer for the original, the remake seems to be a word for word, scene for scene adaptation. It will be interesting to see if it really is.
