Cinematique: "Gloria" (New Time, 7PM)
Gloria, Chile's official entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards, stars Paulina García in a tour de force performance that captured the Silver Bear Best Actress Award at this year's Berlin Film Festival. Gloria is a "woman of a certain age" but still feels young. Though lonely, she makes the best of her situation and fills her nights seeking love at social dance clubs for single adults.
Her fragile happiness changes the day she meets Rodolfo. Their intense passion, to which Gloria gives her all, leaves her vacillating between hope and despair-until she uncovers a new strength and realizes that, in her golden years, she can shine brighter than ever. (R, 1hr, 50min)

"Gloria" is that rare work, a truly adult film. By its end, you want to cheer the simple act of living.” -Tom Long, Detroit News
