Here’s the trailer for Gloria, Chile’s official submission to the Oscars 2014 Best Foreign Language Film category. Paulina Garcia stars as Gloria, a free-spirited older woman who uncovers a new strength when a passionate new relationship doesn’t go according to plan. Garcia took home Best Actress at the Berlin Film Festival for what looks like a fantastic performance. Early screenings have critics raving, calling it a feel good film. We’re looking forward to seeing it, the fact that TheReelWord’s manager is from Chile has nothing to do with it. Really.
