She's one hell of a woman.
She attempted to beat the mob at their own game.
Director John Cassavetes, known for his unique approach to film-making, creates this powerful, tension-filled story starring Gena Rowlands in an Oscar® nominated performance.
Gloria, is an ex-gun moll and showgirl suddenly forced to protect a child whose parents have been rubbed out by the Mob. Now the Mob wants the child dead too-but first they'll have to deal with Gloria. It all begins when an accountant who is in possession of a ledger which could put a number of "bosses" behind bars for a long time is killed. Before he is murdered, he entrusts the revealing ledger and his son to Gloria for protection, who reluctantly takes the child and begins a life on the run while keeping the Mob at bay, sometimes at the point of a gun. Finally, tired of running, she confronts them head on.
Gloria's hot as a pistol. . .
