Gloria review

A vibrant, compassionate study of middle-aged loneliness and romantic yearning, courtesy of Chilean filmmaker Sebastián Lelio.

Played with intelligence and integrity by Pauline Garcia, the titular Gloria is a fiftysomething divorcee and mother of two adult children, embarking on a new relationship with the emotionally cautious Rodolfo (Sergio Hernández), whom she first encounters at a Santiago singles night.

Sticking tightly to its heroine’s everyday routines and rituals, this deft blend of humour and pathos fully earns its defiantly upbeat dance-floor denouement.
