ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Sebastián Lelio (A FANTASTIC WOMAN, DISOBEDIENCE) brings his gift of depicting deeply complex characters on screen to GLORIA, a Berlin and San Sebastián International Film Festival award winner that centers on an aging, free-spirited divorcee (Paulina García) who embarks on an intense affair with a man (Sergio Hernández) she picked up at a disco. García gives a powerful performance that won the hearts of both critics and audiences, and earned the Silver Berlin Bear for Best Actress. Rated a near-perfect 99% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, Lelio's film is "an endlessly watchable creation - a wonderful example of an actress melting into a role, and a co-writer/director with almost superhuman levels of sensitivity and empathy for his characters" (The Playlist).
