Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: We don't make movies in America like Gloria, so we have to import them. I wish we'd import more -- and make a few, as well.
Fresh: The film belongs to Garcia, who is in literally every shot. Wafting over Garcia's face at different moments are contentment, frustration, loneliness, disappointment, happiness.
Fresh: This is a driven, indelible character -- like the women Gena Rowlands played for John Cassavetes -- and you fear her going over the edge not least because you suspect you'd follow her.
Fresh: "Gloria" is that rare work, a truly adult film. By its end, you want to cheer the simple act of living.
what a movie~!!!!!
First review ever on movies but this one is a keeper by a long shot. I wish i could pick up my pieces when i’m broken down like she does over and over in the movie
Vulnerable and extraordinary
Garcia gives a compelling performance as this very cooky, fabulous character. Gloria is a must-see
Dance of Life, second chance.
Paulina Garcia in lead role is awesome. The middle aged woman with plenty of élan and juice left in her. She wants to get 'dancing', but partners are hard to come by. Solo dancing only satisfies a part of her. She falls, trips and stumbles her way to find happiness somehow, Entire film is limited by weak cinema technique of the director. It would be a 4.5 star film.
Watch it if you like unique characters, midlife hurdles, joy of life, passion-driven women and clues to discovering what to do and what not to do on the journey.
It's about love, laughter and dancing, love-making, a little too much wine and a try at some weed. Ugly cats, noisy neighbors, and umbilicals to children that never got cut.
The followup sequel should be called Ten Days in Cuba with Gloria. Enjoy.
