“Gloria Bell,” starring Julianne Moore, celebrates the beauty of an “ordinary life,” and is a love story that’s more about finding yourself than “the one.”
“I want audiences to have that kind of an intimate experience when they watch [Gloria] and think of their own lives. The drama of their own everyday life,” Moore said. “[It’s a] very full portrait of a woman’s life, and who she is, and her various relationships, and then you get a chance to see her in her entirety, too. And I think that we are endlessly fascinated by each other.”
The film is a remake of the 2013 Chilean Spanish film “Gloria,” helmed again by Oscar-winning director Sebastián Lelio.
“I feel I know her better, Gloria. But I could know her even more. That’s how complex she is,” he explained.
Moore says that the point-of-view of gender doesn’t have as much authority on the film as it does with others.
“You know, people talk about seeing things from a gender-specific place and I’d like to think that we don’t have to be that binary, you know?” she said. “As much as I want to have films about women I also feel like— how do we celebrate films as human beings?”
