Terry Hunter reviews THE GLORIAS starring Alicia Vikander and Julianne Moore

Alicia Vikander and Julianne Moore play Gloria Steinem at different ages in THE GLORIAS a biopic about the feminist icon directed by Julie Taymor. (It’s based on Steinem’s 2015 memoir, MY LIFE ON THE ROAD.) Both actresses capture the style and personality of this influential activist for women’s rights who co-founded MS magazine in the early 70’s and is still advocating for women today at the age of 86. The movie actually uses four actresses to play Gloria. Ryan Kiera Armstrong at age 6 and Lulu Wilson at 12 as well Vikander from her 20’s to 40 and Moore from 40 to 80. What I found most interesting were scenes from Gloria’s life before she became famous. (Free on Amazon Prime, $7.99 on Vudu, YouTube, and Google Play)
