Gloria - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Gloria (Sharon Stone) has survived more than her share of risky relationships. This time she's hooked up with a guy who's real trouble, a guy who could get her killed.
He is six years old.
Gloria, a Mandalay Entertainment Presentation for Columbia Pictures, demonstrates that change is both painful and possible. The motion picture stars Academy Award nominee Sharon Stone in the title role of a woman who could always handle anything life threw her way-until now.
Fresh off a three-year Florida prison term (she took a fall for her mobster boyfriend, Kevin), Gloria immediately violates parole and returns to New York City and a bleak future littered with broken promises. Desperate and angry, she lashes out, putting to good use the tough education she earned growing up in Hell's Kitchen. In the process, she accidentally becomes guardian of a stubborn six-year-old boy, Nicky (Jean-Luke Figueroa), whose family has been wiped out by her criminal consorts. He possesses devastating information that can destroy an underworld empire.
Gloria has always traveled light and been in control. Now she's forced to scurry through the streets of New York burdened by this excess baggage, whom she doesn't like or understand. To make matters worse, he has an even lower opinion of her. As Gloria's life spins out of control, she realizes that both she and the boy are marked for murder by the mob. They have nobody but each other.
Ultimately, these two misfits brought together by a twist of fate transform each other. Gloria gives her charge a second crack at childhood. And he gives her a second chance at life, revealing more about love than all the tough men she's ever known.
