Gloria (Julianne Moore) is a free-spirited divorcée who spends her days at a straight-laced office job and her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles. After meeting Arnold (John Turturro) on a night out, she finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with both the joys of budding love and the complications of dating, identity, and family.
“The title character in Gloria Bell—played by a transcendent Julianne Moore—is a restless life force….As a performer, Moore can go big, and a terrible yowl here pierces the heart. But she’s a virtuoso of restraint.” — Manohla Dargis, New York Times
“Moore—vulnerable but undauntable—lives every moment in her skin, fantastic to the last glorious frame.” — Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
“It’s a quiet little movie that speaks the truth like a clarion call.” — Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
