"Gloria" is a story set in Santiago about a divorced woman "of a certain age." She is looking for love and excitement but not at the expense of her self-respect. She is strong and determined to find joy in life, no matter what.
At times it's highly comedic and other times sad but Gloria (Paulina García) is a character to root for and no matter what age you are it is easy to get inside her head and identify with what she is feeling.
The movie premiered at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival, where García won the Silver Bear for Best Actress. It was selected as the Chilean entry for this year's 86th Academy Awards in the category of Best Foreign Language Film. Sadly, it didn't make the cut even though it has the chops. "Gloria" was also an official selection at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
