D. Sebastián Lelio | M | USA
Academy award winner Sebastián Lelio (A Fantastic Woman) directs Academy Award–winning actor Julianne Moore (Still Alice) in this English-language remake of his 2013 film about a free-spirited, middle-aged divorcee hoping to find love on the dance floor.
Gloria (Moore) is a free-spirited divorcee 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 suddenly finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with both the joys of budding love and the complications of dating, identity and family.
Drawing dazzling energy from his new cast and locations, Lelio follows Gloria as she navigates midlife romance and figures out what she truly wants. Moore’s take on the character is a fresh revelation: while maintaining Gloria’s feisty spirit and eagerness to connect, she discovers just how satisfying it can be to dance alone.
Co-starring Michaal Cera, Sean Astin, Jeanne Tripplehorn and Rita Wilson.
