Highly Suspect Reviews: Gloria Bell

Gloria Bell Podcast Review


Academy award-winning director of A Fantastic Woman in 2017, Sebastián Lelio, follows up his win with the English language remake of his 2013 Chilean film Gloria. What you’ve got here is a display piece for Julianne Moore’s impressive talents as a performer…but not a whole heckuva lot else. Here she plays Gloria, a long-divorced empty-nester who is looking for something outside of her day-to-day lonely life. Going to discos at night, she unenthusiastically seeks companionship and ends up with Arnold (John Turturro). He seems great at first but maybe there’s more to him than meets the eye. Or less. We were kinda mixed about this one but still admitted there was plenty to admire about it. Listen to Chris, Ben, and Beau give their review.
