Julianne Moore Hits The Dance Floor In “Gloria Bell”

By Creative Media Times


Julianne Moore is a disco-dancing divorcée who finds love in the amusing new trailer for “Gloria Bell,” A24’s upcoming romance drama.

“When the world blows up, I hope I go down dancing,” Moore’s titular role says in the trailer. It is at the club where she meets Arnold, played by Turturro, and not long after, things got complicated.

“Gloria Bell” is a remake of director Sebastián Lelio’s own Chilean-Spanish dramady “Gloria.” Chilean actress Paulina García won the Silver Bear for Best Actress for that film at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2013. Lelio himself recently won an academy award for best foreign language film in “A Fantastic Woman.”

Written by Lelio, “Gloria Bell” premiered a few months ago on September 7 at the Toronto International Film Festival and has since received strong reviews.

Fearing a talented cast including Michael Cera, Caren Pistorius, Brad Garrett, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Rita Wilson, Sean Astin and Holland Taylor, the film is set for release on on March 8, 2019.

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:

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 (A Fantastic Woman, Disobedience) 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.
