Gloria 15

Director: Sebastián Lelio
Cast: Paulina García, Sergio Hernández
Origin: Chile
Subtitles: Yes

In Sebastian Lelio's surprising and funny film, Paulina García delivers the performance of a lifetime, for which she deservedly won the Best Actress prize at Berlin. Garcia plays Gloria, who is 58 years old but still feels young. She goes to dance clubs but maintains a polite remove from all men, until she meets Rodolfo, with whom she decides to take the plunge into romance. Refreshing in the candour with which it depicts middle-age physicality and sexuality, and with a great soundtrack ranging from disco to cult Latin American hits, Gloria is an uplifting comedy-drama with a transcendent climax.
