23 Jan The Script Lab Review: Gloria
There’s an air of loneliness in Sebastián Lelio’s warmly directed Chilean drama Gloria. Nonetheless, more than enough lighthearted moments perfectly compliment a pretty somber tone. Primarily focused around the almost isolated life of its 58-year-old divorcee, Paulina García shines as the film’s extremely relatable titular character. García gloriously portrays a woman dealing with such a desolate reality as best as she can. Alongside being single, both two children are coming into their own as adults, her small apartment keeps attracting a hairless cat and upstairs neighbors make goodnight rests nearly impossible.
