GLORIA BELL (2018) Gloria (Julianne Moore) is a free-spirited divorcée who spends her days at a straight-laced office job and her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles. After meeting Arnold (John Turturro) on a night out, she finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with both the joys of budding love and the complications of dating, identity and family. From Academy Award®-winning director Sebastián Lelio (DISOBEDIENCE, A FANTASTIC WOMAN, GLORIA) comes a sophisticated romantic comedy that shows love can strike at any time, relationships are never simple and nothing can get you down as long as you keep dancing.
