Who better than the infinitely talented Academy Award-winning Julianne Moore to fill García's shoes, an actor who has explored both the dark depths of ageing as well as its serene serendipity. Moore plays a woman who works a monotonous job as a manager at an insurance company.
As a divorced middle-aged woman with two grown children, the world dictates that a life of fun and fiery romance is now well out of reach. But Gloria not only rejects these norms, she triumphantly casts them off, dancing the night away at night clubs where she meets Arnold (John Turturro). They begin a romance, but between the two of them, they have plenty of baggage, and adolescent children and controlling exes threaten to unravel their already fraught relationship.
A strong sense of 'life begins at fifty' seems to be the triumphant message in the breezy film, and no doubt Moore's dorky dance moves will have us bopping along right there with her in the cinema.
