Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool
Unorthodox and sincere, Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool is the kind of showbiz love story seldom depicted onscreen. ~TIFF 2017
Based on Peter Turner’s memoir, the film follows the playful but passionate relationship between Turner (Jamie Bell) and the eccentric Academy Award winning actress Gloria Grahame (Annette Bening) in 1978 Liverpool. What starts as a vibrant affair between a legendary femme fatale and her young lover quickly grows into a deeper relationship, with Turner being the person Gloria turns to for comfort. Their passion and lust for life is tested to the limits by events beyond their control. ~Rotten Tomatoes
