Starring Moore, John Turturro, Michael Cera, Brad Garrett, Holland Taylor, and newcomer Caren Pistorius, this follows Gloria (Moore), a free-spirited woman in her 50s. Though lonely, she makes the best of her situation and fills her nights seeking love at social dance clubs for single adults in Los Angeles. Her fragile happiness changes the day she meets Arnold (Turturro). Their intense passion, to which she gives her all, leaves her vacillating between hope and despair, until she uncovers a new strength and realizes that now, surprisingly, she can shine brighter than ever.

Release Date/Prediction: Cannes or Venice.
