Honest Chilean drama admits love isn’t any easier the second time around

By Devin D. O’Leary
Gloria doesn’t spend a lot of time introducing us to its main character. This isn’t a first-date situation. Lelio’s sensitive romantic drama simply drops us into her life and lets us discover who she is over the course of time.

If your closest connection to the material is Dennis Miller’s “Pinochet Countdown” contest from “Saturday Night Live,” then you’re primed and ready to watch NO spoiler free.
