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)
