Gloria (Julianne Moore), a free spirited divorcée, spends her days selling insurance and her nights dancing to disco anthems at an LA singles club for the over fifties. Struggling to retain her cheerful outlook in a world where women her age are considered invisable, she finds the potential for romance when she meets newly-divorced Arnold (Turturro) , and embarks on the complicated, joyful journey of new found love. As Gloria navigates the challenges life sends her way she maintains her feisty spirit and an egerness to connect.
Academy Award winning director Sebastian Lelio (A Fantastic Woman, Disobedience) deliverers a faithful, elevated remake of his 2013 critical hit Gloria.

‘’Moore’s compassionate performance confirms the strength of the original and its beloved heroine’s universal appeal. More than that, “Gloria Bell” proves that the best stories can be told endlessly, so long as they’re told well.’’
–Eric Kohn, IndieWire
‘’Moore’s performance means that we are with Gloria every step of the way, sharing in the little victories and the jolting setbacks. Her hard won belief in herself and undimmed appetite for life make for a joyous finale that is impossible to resist.’’
-Allan Hunter, Screen International
