Gloria is a work of maturity, depth and emotional insight. There’s not a single false note here.
It is to Lelio’s credit that he steers clear of stereotypes and lets the story unfold organically without judgment or sentimentality. There is an unflinching honesty and intelligence here.
Both actors still manage to show something we rarely see on screen: the heartache and happiness that come with love late in life.
With someone else in the central role, Gloria might have been cloyingly sentimental or downright maudlin. With Ms. García on hand, it's a mostly convincing celebration of unquenchable energy.
