A mean, homophobic, 67-year-old Jewish man walks into a bar.
Wearing a dress.
And a wig.
Nope, this isn’t the setup to a bad joke or even the plotline of a fictional comedy trying to capitalize on the transgender revolution taking place in the US.
It’s actually the plot of a documentary.
Yep, Uncle Gloria: One Helluva Ride is a true story about a man hiding from authorities by disguising himself as a woman. Yet somehow along the way he learns what it means to accept people for who they are.
It’s a remarkable story filled with plenty of surprises.
The least of which are Uncle Gloria’s really sexy legs.
