Chile / Spain, 2013, 110 mins. Dir. Sebastian Lelio
A light-hearted examination of a country in a state of flux, told beautifully through the tragic efforts of its hopelessly romantic protagonist. Gloria is an ageing divorcee who is determined not to spend the rest of her days alone. She spends her evenings at a local singles club where she drinks cocktails and dances to disco music amongst a rabble of similarly lonely souls, each attempting to rebel against their solitude and fight off the advance of old age. A charming and culturally enlightening film.
