Mister D: The reviews seem to be mostly mixed to good on this movie, My favorite line of a review, even though it was negative is: “the women’s rights all-stars with whom Steinem has worked, would be welcome if the screenplay showed them doing more than spouting catchphrases like walking Twitter accounts.”


The Utah Review: The Glorias unique creative nonfiction take on the life’s work of Gloria Steinem – 02-02-20


“Bette Midler truly brings former U.S. Representative Bella Abzug back to life in her performance”


ScreenDaily: ‘The Glorias’: Sundance Review, January 28, 2020


“Among the supporting cast, Lorraine Toussaint is excellent company as Florynce Kennedy, an African-American lawyer who helped educate Steinem on the plight of black women, while Bette Midler has a blast playing the unapologetic activist Bella Abzug, who teaches our main character how to grow a thick skin when fighting for her beliefs.”


New York Post: ‘The Glorias’ forgets Gloria Steinem is a human being – January 28, 2020


“when Gloria meets New York representative Bella Abzug, played by a spunky Bette Midler, and they help found the National Women’s Political Caucus. The script, co-written by Taymor and Sarah Ruhl, doesn’t push Midler to be anything more than a comedian with so-so jokes, but she thankfully injects some fizz into otherwise still water.”
