Unfocused but well acted; "The Glorias" pays homage to a feminist icon with a talented cast but the final product is far from being iconic.

In this drama, feminist icon Gloria Steinem recounts her itinerant childhood's influence on her life as a writer, activist and organizer for women's rights worldwide. Based on a true story.

I can appreciate director Julie Taymor's vision (except for that "Wizard Of Oz" sequence, which was a bit much), but "The Glorias" leans more on the messy side rather than being wholly empowering. However the cast is great; Julianne Moore is terrific, Alicia Vikander delivers a solid performance, but Bette Midler is the scene stealer and kicks serious ass in her role. An inspiring and interesting story but overly long and uneven.
