Universal City, California, August 20, 2015 – An explosive and driven young singer-songwriter aims for the stars in Gloria, a riveting glimpse of real-life show-business survivor Gloria Trevi, available on Digital HD on September 29, 2015, and on DVD on October 13, 2015, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Starring Sofía Espinosa (Los Bañistas), whose “ferocious performance evokes both Madonna and Miley Cyrus” (Stephen Holden, The New York Times), and Marco Pérez (Amores Perros), Gloria is an unforgettable look at one young woman’s journey on the way to the top of the global pop charts.
A bold and compelling tale of ambition, adversity and triumph, Gloria is inspired by the story of international pop icon Gloria Trevi, the “Mexican Madonna,” and set to a soundtrack of the diva’s infectious hits. Propelled by her controversial lyrics and outrageous persona, Gloria shoots to unparalleled stardom—until astonishing events bring her world crashing down. A film as provocative as Trevi herself, Gloria chronicles the sacrifices, setbacks, redemption and rebirth in the extraordinary career of a musical superstar.
