GLORIA     Back by popular demand!

Director: Sebastián Lelio  
Chile, 2013, 110 min; Spanish with subtitles; 14A

“Are you always this happy?” Rodolfo asks Gloria, shortly after catching her eye. They are at a nightclub where middle-aged residents of Santiago, Chile, dance and flirt, and where Gloria, in her 50s and long divorced, occasionally goes to attract the attention of a silver-haired Romeo. No, she says, sometimes in the mornings she is sad, and in the afternoons, too.

The great accomplishment of “Gloria,” the Chilean writer-director Sebastián Lelio’s astute, unpretentious and thrillingly humane new film, is that it acknowledges both sides of its heroine’s temperament without judgment or sentimentality. Gloria, played with dignity and gusto by Paulina García, is too complicated for such treatment.

Her life is a familiar jumble of pleasures and frustrations, her personality a weave of moods, foibles and admirable traits. She sometimes drinks too much, and hovers needily around her two grown children. She endures a dull office job. She is immune to self-pity and not averse to emotional risk.

One of the delights of “Gloria” is that its richly detailed realism is fuel for thought: about Chile, about men and women, about the cycles of family life. But Mr. Lelio is interested, above all, in showing Gloria exactly as she is, which is beautiful.

One of the most enjoyable movies to come along in a while.” --Los Angeles Times

“It elevates your mood to such a point that you wish you could hug the screen out of sheer joy and recognition!”  –RogerEbert.com
