“Whip-smart satire of fear and loathing in a beleaguered industry under siege” – The New York Times
An ambitious group of editorial assistants at a notorious Manhattan magazine vie for a starry life of feature articles and book deals, all while the internet is completely upending their industry. When an ordinary humdrum workday becomes anything but, these aspiring journalists recognize an opportunity to seize a career-defining moment. A Canadian premiere, GLORIA tells a story of the lingering effects of trauma in a time when what sells is more important than the truth.
