‘The Glorias’ official teaser, featuring Oscar-winning Hollywood stars Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander as feminist icon Gloria Steinem, is finally here.
Roadside Attractions dropped the new footage for the highly anticipated biopic on Thursday.
Directed by Julie Taymor (Frida), ‘The Glorias’ is set to debut Sept. 30 on Amazon Prime Video. The movie premiered at the Sundance International Film Festival earlier this year.
Taymor gives us her singular take on that rare genre- the Female Road Picture, one in which the female leads do not die in the end, and where the “narrative” is not driven by romance or a bad marriage, or unrequited love or, for that matter, men.
‘The Glorias’ traces Steinem’s influential journey to prominence—from her time in India as a young woman to the founding of Ms. magazine in New York to her role in the rise of the women’s rights movement in the 1960s, to the historic 1977 National Women’s Conference and beyond.
The brand new teaser also features a number of iconic women who made profound contributions to the women’s movement, including Dorothy Pitman Hughes (Janelle Monáe), Flo Kennedy (Lorraine Toussaint), Wilma Mankiller (Kimberly Guerrero), Bella Abzug (Bette Midler) and Dolores Huerta (Monica Sanchez).
‘The Glorias’ is based on Steinem’s 2015 autobiography My Life on the Road.
In the film, the various Glorias appear in conversation with each other as they travel through ‘The Glorias’ in a Greyhound bus. Gloria’s story is about her “Meetings With Remarkable Women”. And that is a love story in itself.
