Directed by Julie Taymor. With Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Janelle Monáe, Ryan Kiera Armstrong. The story of feminist icon Gloria Steinem's itinerant childhood's influence on her life as a writer, activist and organizer for women's rights worldwide.
An interesting contrast with the smaller presentation of her in similar contexts in the recent FX 10 part series Ms. America. The narrative construct of the bus ride with the Glorias at different ages was interesting though a bit forced at times.
I was a bit shocked to have said, “That seems like a younger Bette Middler” only to be surprised to discover that it actually was her in the credits. These sorts of performances always make me so happy.
