Quotes

Vicky: The fact that a civilian can just walk in and buy a *military-style assault rifle* is just beyond me.
Arnold: Well, the majority of gun owners *are* responsible.
Vicky: Okay!

Vicky: Uhh...
Charlie: [interrupting] This is not about the majority.
Vicky: [continues without stopping for Charlie] The responsibility that you're *referring* to is what is going to blow up the whole planet.

User Reviews

 
A portrait of loneliness in an ordinary life

Gloria is a fifty-something long-term divorcée, with two grown-up children and with a subdued professional life. She's even a young granny since a short time. In short, all lights are red. It's only missing menopause... And then arrives Arnold, a charming guy who turns out to be stuck within a castrating environment. This film is desperately pessimistic, despite the manifold disco hits, and reminds the universal difficulty of 'rebuilding' its life, following a divorce with child(ren). The duo Julianne Moore + John Turturro is stunning, knowing that Julianne Moore is gorgeous, as usual.
