Julianne Moore truly is one of the greatest of all time, and it's a delight to watch her bring her peppy gravitas to a role that many would have seen fit to lean on trope to portray.

Best musical of the year. Julianne Moore in a take no prisoners transformative rebel middle age makeover. And with lots of self-celebratory, breathlessly expressive emancipation in this somewhat feminist musical too.

[Julianne Moore] is always terrific, but she gives an especially terrific, well-rounded performance here. It's nuanced, vulnerable, strong, funny, emotionally rich and textured.

Bringing a free-flowing and European cinematic style to tell the story of a modern American woman, Gloria Bell will have you rooting and swooning for its title character as she tries to be the auteur of her own biopic.

Moore's performance in Gloria Bell is Oscar worthy and she is surrounded by a solid group of actors who help her to shine.

Lelio creates a luminous new version although one can't help but feel they have seen this before. [Full review in Spanish]

Thanks to the strength of the cast and the intense and refined leadership of Lelio, who adapts to the new times with renewed energy and an attentive look at the feelings of this woman, is not less than its predecessor. [Full Review in Spanish]

Although we get to see the same story again, the perspective changes with the performance of Moore. [Full Review in Spanish]

A fifty-plus, office-working, martini-sipping, music- and dance-loving divorced mother of two adult children, Gloria Bell isn't afraid of flying solo. But then she meets fellow divorcé and former Marine Arnold.

Gloria Bell is more jovial and modern than the original version, which means that some relevant themes are lost in translation. [Full Review in Spanish]

Leilo's empathy for his characters is matched by his actors' skills.

A well-observed, good character study, although something that you may have seen before.

But even as the film establishes Gloria as a modern everywoman looking for love, there are glimmers of originality ...

Viewers will find plenty to admire in this finely crafted film. And perhaps a less starry cast might have given the film an even stronger kick.

Gloria... is brimming with life. [Full review in Spanish]

The whole affair feels perfectly adequate -- nothing more or nothing less. As always, Moore delivers a nuanced portrayal of a middle-aged woman that is as sumptuous to watch as her graceful ageing on screen over decades worth of work.

Gloria Bell is somewhat exhausting - both unbearably intimate and at a constant remove - but it is endlessly pulled back into focus by Moore.
June 10, 2019
The byplay between Moore and Turturro is delightful, but the entire ensemble impresses, along with cinematographer Natasha Braier, who imparts an energy and elegance that is complemented beautifully by the judiciously selected songtrack.

The result isn't better than the 2013 original but it's just as good.

A fascinating coming of middle age tale with Julianne Moore putting in another star turn.
