Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Feb 9th at 4:30 for Gloria at the Landmark Bethesda Row . Look for Laine wearing a green coat in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Gloria (Paulina Garcia) is a “woman of a certain age” but still feels young. Though lonely, she makes the best of her situation and fills her nights seeking love at social dance clubs for single adults. Her fragile happiness changes the day she meets Rodolfo (Sergio Hernandez). Their intense passion, to which Gloria gives her all, leaves her vacillating between hope and despairuntil she uncovers a new strength and realizes that, in her golden years, she can shine brighter than ever. The film is exclusively and radically told from a single point of viewGloria’sand Garcia’s tour de force performance captured the Silver Bear for Best Actress at the Berlin Film Festival. Chile’s Official Selection for Best Foreign Language Film consideration at the 86th Academy Awards. Directed and co-written by Sebastian Lelio.
Bethesda Row now offers assigned seating in its theatres. I have purchased seat H3. If we are not all able to sit together, we will meet back upstairs in the main floor theatre lobby after the film ends.
