The Glorias

USA 2020 | 139 minutes | English | Hebrew subtitles

Gloria Steinem is an icon: A journalist whose writing influenced generations of female readers, a human rights activist who does not rest for a moment, and a feminist who led the gender revolution in the sixties. Her fascinating personality led esteemed American filmmaker Julie Taymor (Frida, Across the Universe) to create an unconventional biopic, revealing a series of periods in Steinem's life – from her days in India, through her brilliant career in journalism in New York, until her great breakthrough as the leader of the women's protest. Taymor makes use of all the creativity required to convey Steinem's complex character; the film is based on her autobiography and casts two wonderful actresses in the lead roles - Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander.
