First look at the unconventional Gloria Steinem biopic.


Director Julie Taymor (Frida; Across the Universe) delivers what's been billed as an unconventional biopic of feminist icon Gloria Steinem with The Glorias, cowritten with Sarah Ruhl.

Four actresses (Alicia Vikander, Julianne Moore, Lulu Wilson and Ryan Kira Armstrong) portray the writer in various stages of her life, with a supporting cast of influential characters including Dorothy Pitman Hughes (Janelle MonĂ¡e), Flo Kennedy (Lorraine Toussaint), Bella Abzug (Bette Midler), Dolores Huerta (Monica Sanchez) and Wilma Mankiller (Kimberly Guerrero).

The Glorias is on Amazon Prime Video from September 30th.

Check out the trailer and poster below.


The official synopsis reads:

Journalist, fighter, and feminist Gloria Steinem is an indelible icon known for her world-shaping activism, guidance of the revolutionary women’s movement, and writing that has impacted generations. In this nontraditional biopic, Julie Taymor crafts a complex tapestry of one of the most inspirational and legendary figures of modern history, based on Steinem’s own biographical book ‘My Life on the Road.’ THE GLORIAS (Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Lulu Wilson, Ryan Keira Armstrong) traces Steinem’s influential journey to prominence—from her time in India as a young woman, to the founding of Ms. magazine in New York, to her role in the rise of the women’s rights movement in the 1960s, to the historic 1977 National Women’s Conference and beyond.
