GLORIA

A funny, melancholy and ultimately uplifting story of a 58-year-old woman, looking for company, romance and perhaps even love

Set in Santiago, the story is centered on Gloria, a free-spirited 58-year-old divorcée. Her children have all left home but she has no desire to spend her days and nights alone. Determined to defy old age and loneliness, she rushes headlong into a whirl of singles’ parties on the hunt for instant gratification – which just leads repeatedly to disappointment and emptiness. But then she meets Rodolfo (Hernández), an ex-naval officer seven years her senior to whom she feels romantically inclined. She even begins to imagine a permanent relationship. However, the encounter presents unexpected challenges and Gloria gradually finds herself being forced to confront her own dark secrets.

Directed by: Sebastián Lelio.  Starring: Paulina García, Sergio Hernández, Diego Fontecilla
