Gloria

Let's get together at Plaza Frontenac on Monday, February 3rd for a viewing of Gloria, Chile's Official Selection for Best Foreign Language Film consideration at the 86th Academy Awards. 

The movie begins at 7:10pm. If anyone would like to meet up before the the show at the Bread Co., I'll arrive there around 5:45pm. The Bread Co is located off of Clayton Road outside of Saks Fifth Avenue. Several people had issues with their GPS (myself included!) at the last meet up, so just head over to Plaza Frontanc and look for the Bread Co outside of Saks. If you want to attend the movie only, that's great too!

Gloria (Paulina García) 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 Hernández). Their intense passion, to which Gloria gives her all, leaves her vacillating between hope and despair—until 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 view—Gloria's—and Garcia's tour de force performance captured the Silver Bear Best Actress Award at this year's Berlin Film Festival. Chile's Official Selection for Best Foreign Language Film consideration at the 86th Academy Awards. Directed and co-written by Sebastián Lelio. (Fully subtitled)

      Thank you for sharing your popcorn. I did not have time for dinner after work so I was starving. I almost bought a box of Milk Duds but I saw they were $3.75 and I could not agree to purchasing a few bites of candy for the price of a large cheeseburger.

    I enjoyed it. Not quite as light hearted as the trailer would have you believe, but I liked her spirit. Thanks all for coming out!

    But I *hated* how the movie de-glamorized dating after divorce and the sex life of 50-60 year-olds! (HA!)

    It was a good movie! I liked the fact that even after all the disappointments, she didn't give up on life. I felt like in this movie the peacock in the end was preferred to the skeleton.

      Good observation. I had completely forgotten about that until you mentioned it.

    Hi Karla, I am coming to the movie, I am not sure about Breadco, I may have to go home in between work and the movie and let my little dog out, in which case I wont get there until about 7. If I can find someone to let him out I'll be at breadco at 5:45. See you on Monday!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
