It's a remarkably enjoyable movie, downright cathartic in its presentation of a three-dimensional character.
Gloria Bell maintains a warm but rigorously unsentimental tone despite material which could easily lend itself to mawkish sentimentality.
Moore is great in the movie, uncovering - and sharing - all sorts of new facets to Gloria's character, but Turturro is a revelation...
For lovers of the first film, the remake has the tendency to feel a bit less refreshing... On the other hand, Moore's lithesome interpretation of a middle-aged woman finally learning how to live out loud still manages to be poignant and enjoyable.
Gloria Bell's strongest suit is the way the film alchemically creates weaves emotional textures without any obvious change in tone.
The film is designed to make Gloria an audience surrogate... When she triumphs, the film builds to something euphoric.
Julianne Moore is incredible.
It might be sacrilege to say this, but not only is this "shot for shot" remake a very good film, it's actually better than the original.
Lelio does not shy away from the melancholy of his protagonist's isolated situation, and it makes her triumphs all the sweeter to savor.
The glorious Julianne Moore is the best reason to see this American adaptation of Sebastián Lelio's Chilean film.
Gloria Bell pairs perhaps the best portrayer of troubled or lost women with a director who has built a career building stories around them, and the result is a film that comfortably banishes any fears of some neutered US remake.
Lelio weaves some casual visual poetry into the film, bursts of color and motion that briefly hint at something surreal just on this film's margins. He mostly relies on Moore, though. With good reason!
