Gloria Bell Rating: 14A 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. While the original Spanish-language film was excellent, critics agree Julianne Moore is a stand-out who gives this version the vibrancy it needs. Gloria adores her adult children (Michael Cera and Caren Pistorius), but she's interested in being more than a grandmother. She loves to spend her evenings dancing in singles clubs, hoping to meet Mr. Right. It all seems to be falling into place when she meets the recently divorced Arnold (John Turturro), who falls for her bright smile and sees the beauty behind her oversized glasses. But Arnold's ex-wife and grown-up daughters have an unhealthy hold on him, and it seems he doesn't know how to let go of the past - or his incessantly ringing mobile phone
