Watch: Exclusive Trailer for Chile’s Official Oscar Bid, ‘Gloria’

Watch: Exclusive Trailer for Chile's Official Oscar Bid, 'Gloria'

Gloria,” Chile’s official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film category of the upcoming 86th Academy Awards, has swiftly attracted widespread critical acclaim for offering an honest, comically-driven portrait of your not-so-typical 50-something year old single woman. 

When fun-loving Gloria (Paulina Garcia) steers her way through the trappings of loneliness and into Rodolfo’s (Sergio Hernandez) arms, his limbo-like affair with his (ex)wife forces her to retreat from her sudden romantic glow. Gloria, however, drags herself heart break to happiness and shines brighter than ever as an emotionally reborn woman in her golden years.

The trailer to Sebastian Lelio’s “Gloria” is at first glance the antithesis to a conventional sorrowful break-up drama ripe with shouting matches and teary monologues. What is presented to us instead is a refreshingly optimistic “look on the bright side” tale of a character for whom age and relationship status could not be more irrelevant.

Roadside Attractions is set to release “Gloria” theatrically January 17, 2014.  

Check out the trailer to “Gloria,” our review of the critically popular film as well as a summary of what other critics have been saying about the film.
