After Church on Sunday 03/24/19 - Film, Gloria Bell

After church on Sunday I went to see Gloria Bell with Julianne Moore.

Waste of time.

Gloria is a divorced woman in her 50s looking for love in the dance clubs. Doesn't find it and has nothing else in her life either.

I was hoping that Gloria would grow up but all she does is grow older.

Her kids are leaving her to get on with their own lives and she seems to think that she will find salvation in special relationships, but alas, they are empty and meaningless even if there does seem to be a half hearted effort by Arnold, also a divorced person,  who can't seem to separate from his ex and his two grown daughters. Arnold says the "right things" to Gloria, but his heart isn't in it and Arnold leaves her high and dry going back to his family.

At the end of the movie, Gloria is smoking more pot and back in the dance clubs.

This film earns a 2 out of 5 on the UU A Way Of Life movie scale. I don't recommend it.
