Gloria





Gloria is interesting in the sense that it's not bad I just don't really relate to it. It basically follows the main character Gloria and she is divorced and quite frankly enjoys life. She meets up with another divorced man at a club and they connect. And that's all I will say because the magic is finding out what happens. I thought the directing was good and not great. I think it's because I have been exposed to many "enjoy life" and "feel good" movies. There is nothing wrong with that but you have to stand out and this one didn't really stand out. The acting is good and there really is nothing exciting about it. The cinematography is actually beautiful in it's simplicity which I really enjoyed. The reason I can't give this a higher score is because I have never been divorced nor am I middle aged. But I can recognize it's a good movie. This was Chile's submission into the Oscars for best foreign film and I can say it's good but there is a reason it wasn't accepted (to much competition). This will definitely hit better with the divorced or middle aged crowd but as for me it was missing a unique spark you have to have to stand out. 7/10
