Journalist, fighter, and feminist Gloria Steinem is an indelible icon known for her world-shaping activism, her guidance of the revolutionary women’s movement, and her writing that has impacted generations. In this non-traditional biopic, against the backdrop of a lonely bus on an open highway, five Glorias trace Steinem’s influential 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 and beyond.
Director Julie Taymor calls her film a ‘female road picture’; a genre in which female characters are central – without the usual main themes such as romance, marriage or sex. With her film, Taymor pays tribute to emancipation and self-reflection, exploring the importance of finding your own path and embracing the challenge of the open road.

Julie Taymor, USA, 2020, 148 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, Lulu Wilson, Gloria Steinem.
