Gloria ★★

D: Sidney Lumet. Sharon Stone, Jean-Luke Figueroa, Jeremy Northam, George C. Scott, Cathy Moriarty, Bonnie Bedelia, Mike Starr. Unnecessary, sentimental remake of 1980 John Cassavetes melodrama with Stone stepping into Gena Rowlands’ pumps as a tough ex–gun moll on the lam with an adorable Puerto Rican tyke (Figueroa) in tow. Still watchable, thanks to Stone’s funny, full-bodied performance (once you get over her barely credible Noo Yawk accent) and her cuddly costar. Scott’s final theatrical film. [R]
