April brings the theme of resistance. As Martin Luther King, Jr. reminds us, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
Our April Movie The Glorias takes us on a journey through Gloria Steinem life of speaking out and not remaining silent. Mary Ann Johnson writes in a review, “The life of an important, influential woman so rarely gets a cinematic treatment as epic as this one; in fact, I’m struggling to think of a film about a woman that is as big and as bold as The Glorias. This is an incredible achievement for Julie Taymor, rendering the life of Gloria Steinem as a daydream, a nightmare, a journey, an ongoing conversation between the enthusiasm and adventure of youth and the wisdom and knowledge of experience. And what a treat to see two terrific actors — Alicia Vikander and Julianne Moore — allowed to create a portrait of a woman so complex, so well-rounded, so fully and messily human. ”
