GLORIA (2014)

SYNOPSIS

“Gloria!” tells the true-life story of Latin America’s most controversial pop/rock icon Gloria Trevi, who suffered an astounding fall from grace in 2000 after being accused of running a sex cult. This film is a musical drama that, through the point of view of her provocative, sociopolitical music, explores Gloria’s destructive relationship with manager Sergio Andrade and the explosive consequences.

It follows her rise to super-stardom in the ’80s and 90s – selling more than 20 million records – to her sudden, five-year incarceration in Brazil, after being hunted down by Interpol.

She has a baby in jail and finally gets a trial, and is found innocent on all charges in 2004. The filmmakers have optioned Trevi’s exclusive life rights, as well as the rights to other key characters of the story (including Andrade) and Gloria’s music.
