What the Flick?! — Gloria

Paulina Garcia is indeed glorious as the title character: a divorced woman in her 50s carving out her own identity and finding her own happiness. This drama was Chile’s submission for the foreign-language category at the Academy Awards (it was not nominated, unfortunately) but it’s very much worth seeking out. It’s honest, unpredictable and just completely lovely. (And yes, it will put the Laura Branigan song in your head. I’m just warning you now.)
