“Dramatising Steinem’s life during different periods, and with different actresses, Taymor has crafted an exceedingly thoughtful portrait of a leader and the women’s movement she championed.”~Screen Daily
Aroview: Audacious biopic based on the autobiography of journalist and feminist icon Gloria Steinem that begins with a Greyhound bus filled with Gloria Steinems of all ages (played by Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Lulu Wilson, Lorraine Toussaint and Ryan Keira Armstrong).
The film traces her 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.

3 stars (Good Enough) The screenplay, because of the flashbacks, was stretched out a bit but the period details looked good. Hopefully, the film will raise interest in her story and encourage further reading.~tubbs
