‘Gloria Bell’: Simple moments, powerful ones — Julianne Moore makes all magnetic

★★★1⁄2

Richard Roeper / Chicago Sun-Times

Gloria Bell has been divorced for a decade, but it still feels as if she’s in transition — as if she didn’t see this coming. She’s a regular at a Los Angeles disco populated by other fifty- and sixty-somethings who groove to 1970s sounds by the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire. But much of the time she dances alone, and it seems like only recently has she entertained the idea of actually dating any of the silver-haired hopefuls at the club. Gloria is smart and kind and beautiful and funny.

And just sort of … floating from day to day. The breathtakingly talented Julianne Moore gives a luminous and resonant and stunningly good performance as the title character in the Chilean director Sebastian Lelio’s remake of his 2013 film “Gloria.” There is not a single strand of this performance that’s anything short of brilliant.

In a film that rapidly changes tones from scene to scene (and sometimes within a scene) — alternately quirky, hilarious, romantic, bittersweet, melancholy and exhilarating — Moore creates yet another original and memorable character in her world-class canon of work. Even when Gloria is doing something as simple as singing along to an Olivia Newton-John oldie in her car, there’s something magnetic about the moment. This is a quiet film, moving at its own pace, reflecting life with such realism it’s as if we’re invisible guests in Gloria Bell’s life. And yet there’s something thrilling about watching such a great actress hitting all the right notes every step of the way.

Humor, sweetness empower ‘Captain Marvel,’ a fun ’90s superhero throwback

Richard Roeper / Chicago Sun-Times

★★★1⁄2

When Captain Marvel comes down to Earth, that’s when she really soars.

It’s a bit of a slow buildup to get there, as the newest Marvel superhero origins story kicks off on one of those far-too-familiar planets where the skyscrapers seem to extend into forever, and commuters are zipping about in flying-car type thingees, and nobody ever seems to be having any fun because they’re constantly at odds with beings from other planets and other galaxies.

Ah, but when the wonderful Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel crash-lands in a Blockbuster store on planet Earth in the year 1995, that’s when the real fun begins — and that’s where this girl-power/woman-power adventure finds its heart and its stride and its super-cool whiz-bang sense of humor.

Amidst all the scenes with intergalactic warships and fireball-flinging, co-directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck wisely find plenty of room to take the foot off the accelerator and cede center stage to Larson, Jackson and the rest of the greatly talented cast. It’s a real treat to see Carol Danvers find her footing and her wings, so to speak, while at the same time Nick Fury is taking the first steps toward becoming NICK FURY.

Also, there’s that cat named Goose, who is one of the coolest cats in movie history. Keep your eye on that cat. He’s got some hidden talents too.
