Like many films scheduled to be released this year, “The Glorias”, a biopic about Gloria Steinem, will not be screened in movie theaters after all but will head straight to Amazon’s streaming platform.

North American viewers will have to wait until Sept. 30 for the chance to watch Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander star in the film based on the life of the feminist American journalist.


For the moment, the release on Amazon Prime Video only concerns the North American market. The film will also be available for purchase or rental via other streaming platforms.


“The message of Gloria’s life and activism and spirit speak so strongly to the current moment, and we collectively decided to pivot from a theatrical release to this new, digital plan to give the film its widest audience, right away,” stated Roadside co-presidents Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff.

The film had been set to release in movie theaters Sept. 25 in North American after having been screened last January at the Sundance Festival.

Vikander plays the young Gloria Steinem, during her days as a journalist in the 1960s, while Moore takes on the role of the icon for the 1970s period, which covers Steinem’s involvement in the women’s liberation movement. Bette Midler and Janelle Monáe also feature in the cast. IB
