      The Glorias Reviews

      Prev Next

      The film ends up being so interested in showing Steinem’s days as a feminist icon that it often forgets the human element. And it stays away from any of her complexities and controversies leaving us with a fairly one-dimensional portrayal.

      At nearly 2.5 hours, the film could've been shorn a bit, but it's a worthy tribute to an iconic woman's extraordinary life.

      Julie Taymor's gift for visual storytelling works as both literal and metaphoric depiction of Gloria Steinem's extraordinary life.

      It is indeed an empowering and uplifting experience...

      It's a fitting achievement to a truly remarkable woman, and the strength of an entire movement, and a reminder that, as far as equality is concerned, we still have many more miles to go.

      The film lauds all of these accomplishments, but it also takes the time to acknowledge some of the costs of full-time activism.

      What a treat to see two terrific actors - Alicia Vikander and Julianne Moore - allowed to creat a portrait of a woman so complex, so well-rounded, so fully and messily human. Brava.

      The films jumps around a bit - if you're not well versed with the history you might get lost from time-to-time - but it is important recent history and a life story worth celebrating.

      A very special disaster.

      Full Review | Original Score: C- | Aug 10, 2021

      Providing both factual details and relevant ideas, The Glorias acknowledges its subject's failures, as well as successes, and applauds her determination to keep on fighting for her beliefs.

      In these precarious times, where we seem poised on the brink between democracy and despair, The Glorias still manages to present a message of hope.

      There's a good film to be made about Gloria Steinem, a complex human and a pioneer of later 20th-century feminism. [The Glorias] isn't it.

      Poignant and intimate, the narrative isn't afraid to take its time, flowing between decades and locales as if in a free-associative dream state.

      The period trappings are colourful, but the script is non-stop exposition.

      If all this sounds like a rattle-through, it is, however inventive and thoughtful.

      A slightly exhausting film that is smothered by its reverence for its subject.

      Difficult as biopics can be, The Glorias should have been glorious.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5 | Feb 21, 2021

      The film's heart is in the right place, but The Glorias doesn't stand a chance with Taymor at the helm.

      Full Review | Original Score: C | Feb 17, 2021

      Steinem is one of the most influential women in the United States in the past 50 years, but The Glorias fails to show exactly why that is. Turning her portrayal over to four different actors is a great idea, but the film never finds its footing.

      Full Review | Feb 5, 2021

      The Glorias isn't a standard biopic, but it also isn't as radical as its subject. It's an artfully arranged greatest hits package of a remarkable and influential life that dilutes its impact by trying to cover eighty of Steinem's years.
