"Gloria" is the 1999 remake of the original film of the same title.The movie has a screenplay written by John Cassavetes,who was involved in the original 1980 movie as screenwriter and director; and it was directed by Sidney Lumet. It stars Sharon Stone together with Jeremy Northam, Cathy Moriarty-Gentile, and George C.Scott,who appeared in his last film.
It tells the story of a street-toughened middle-age woman named Gloria. She just got out of prison.After her boyfriend was killed in a neighborhood murder,she runs for her life from the mobsters together with a couple's seven-year-old son and develops a mother-and-son-relationship.
It was evident that the movie was not as good as the original. The acting was definitely not good.In fact,Sharon Stone got a Razzie nomination for Worst Actress. Added to that,it was basically a remake with no improvements from the 1980 film.
Overall,watch the original instead to get a better appreciation of the film.
